Trip to Edinburgh and London

Hi all,

I will be travelling to Edinburgh on business and will have free time starting on a Friday morning. I need to leave for home on Wednesday. I was thinking of staying in Edinburgh into Sunday and flying down to London and staying there till Wed. However, I hear York is a great place.
1) So ... how long in Edinburgh?
2) Take a train to York and spend the night?
3) York to London or is Stratford worth seeing?
4) I've been to London but my wife hasn't - maybe a day and 1/2 there?

I like castles and historical places. Any suggestions would be helpful and appreciated!

Thanks.

I'm doing almost the same but first London then Edinburgh. I really think London is worth even it's only one day and a half I think your first option was the best...staying in Edinburgh till Sunday and fly down to London. (and it's cheaper than the train for weekends...)

Cheaper than £12.50 which is the lowest price for an Edinburgh to London train ticket?

See www.gner.co.uk

Sorry, I forgot to say that I looked for next Monday, May 1 , it was probably more expensive and London to Edinburgh...I don't know if Edinburgh to London is cheaper. At www.gner.co.uk
quoted me 120 pounds a one-way standard ticket , I found it too expensive and booked with bmi.

It's what happens when you try to book late for travel over a bank holiday weekend.

BTW cheapest one-way tickets currently for 1st May are £75.50 and if you could have travelled on the 2nd May you'd have paid £28

ohhh, but my dates were fixed, I couldn't change it. And yes, my friend in edinburgh had that price too, 72 pounds..I don't know why they gave that other to me Anyway, I was in a hurry and didn't think too much..just wanted to be sure of the transport on a bank holiday, the trip was unexpected and I did everything two days ago.
