Traveling between London and Scotland - where to recover from jetlag.

Jump to last reply

My family will be traveling to the UK in late July. We will fly into Heathrow (red-eye), would like to spend the night after we arrive somewhere in or close to London (to recover), and then take the train north toward Edinburgh (out of King’s Crossing station). After spending a couple of weeks, mostly in Scotland, we plan to head back to England and will spend our last three or so days exploring London.

We would like advice on where to stay the first night upon arrival in London. We have been told that staying in London, just to recover from jetlag, does not make sense (too expensive). Rick Steves suggests taking a National Express bus to Bath, for example, but Bath is not on the London-Edinburgh train line. Does anyone have suggestions regarding a place to stay that first night that positions us to continue northward via train toward York/Edinburgh? If so, what is the best way to get there from Heathrow?

Also, after leaving the London area by train, is there any reason not to make stops along the way, rent a car to explore areas such as York or Hadrian’s Wall, and continue by train to destinations farther north?

Thank you in advance,
Carol
