This four day trip will take you to Edinburgh.  You will visit York on the way up and the Lake District on the return journey, all of which are too far for a day trip, yet too good to miss.

We have included a visit to Edinburgh Castle and a visit to The Royal Yacht Britannia, but still allowing plenty of free time for you to explore the City of Edinburgh at your leisure.

The trip will leave early morning on Thursday 2nd July from the Students’ Union on Park Place.  The journey to Edinburgh will include a stop off in York for a few hours. Upon arrival in Edinburgh you will check in to your accommodation and have the rest of the evening to spend at your leisure.
