London-Edinburgh-London itinerary


Have you ever wanted to do the drive from London to Edinburgh and back but simply don’t have the time or head space to sort out all the accommodation and figure out the route?

Maybe you’re just curious as to how it might work and need a bit of a push to enable it to happen.

Either way, this itinerary has been created to ensure that you don’t miss out on these trips due to lack of planning.

I’ve put together this itinerary, specifically for a family of four, with kids aged between 7 – 12, with drive times of no longer than 4 hours each leg, and with a mixture of stops geared towards the whole family.

Each stop has a few different types of accommodation for all budgets. The beauty of this itinerary is that you can adapt it to suit you and your holiday – so if you want to stop longer in places you can, to get as much out of it as possible.


In this document (which is downloaded to your device), you will find an overview itinerary followed by logistics, which is where you’ll find clickable links through to all the accommodation that I have personally sourced to meet the requirements’ of this trip. I choose these accommodations’ by relentlessly trawling through all the blogs, sites, Instagram accounts in that area which are relevant and stalking each place as much as possible.

Although I have not been to all the places, you can be rest assured that I have done as much research about it as humanly possible – so if it’s on the itinerary, it’s because its a good option.

I have taken great care to make sure that there are the appropriate amount of bedrooms as required, that there is parking available at each place (except for one of the options in Edinburgh) and that they cater to a range of budgets.
