Historical Escapes

Escape with Virgin Trains… for a date with history

Take a wander back in time with us – who knows, you might not want to come back!

The UK is steeped in history with something to find around every corner – from Romans to Normans, Vikings to vandals – just scratch the surface and you will be surprised at what you find. And the best bit? Our attractions are packaged up with train travel and accommodation so it couldn’t be easier to go back in time in style. Our wide range of hotels are all about modern day comforts and you can choose from three-star convenience to five-star luxury.

If learning about our Kings and Queens is your cup of tea, then you can wander in the footsteps of monarchs from yesteryear with our Three Palace Royal Pass in London.

Or perhaps Shakespeare is more up your street? Learn all about the life and legacy of one of the most famous Britons of all time at the Globe Theatre.

Did you know that there has been a building on the site of Edinburgh Castle since the Bronze Age? It’s a rollercoaster ride of twists and turns right up to the modern day.

Venturing beyond the UK to Paris and Versailles– from rebellions and gardens to palaces and war; there’s enough to surprise even the most knowledgeable of history buffs.

Speed into London Euston or King’s Cross with Virgin Trains and from there it’s a mere stone’s throw to jump aboard a Eurostar™ service, you’ll be in France before you know it. Now Marie Antoinette couldn’t do that back in the 18th century, could she!
