London and Edinburgh are two of our most historic cities, which share strong cultural identities and deep-rooted traditions but which are divided by 332 miles.

Our competition offers you a luxury trip to London and Edinburgh including entrance to attractions associated with the royal family, such as Hampton Court Palace, the Tower of London, Kensington Palace and the Royal Yacht Britannia. This trip for two people will include two nights accommodation in each destination and rail travel between the two cities along the beautiful East Coast Mainline. 

Winners of this exclusive competition will enjoy a two-night stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton London Westminster. This hotel, located in the very heart of this cosmopolitan city, exudes stylish comfort and offers a warm welcome. Situated in the heart of Westminster and within easy reach of the Houses of Parliament, the West End and the Square Mile, this hotel’s location helps you make the most of your time in the English capital where there is always something for everyone.

London offers a mecca for shopping with famous retail spots such as Oxford Street and Bond Street. After shopping, perhaps enjoy a rest in Hyde Park with a boat ride on the Serpentine, or discover one of the city’s world-famous museums such as the Tate Modern or the Natural History Museum. Alternatively, why not take a cruise down the Thames to the Houses of Parliament, the Globe Theatre or Royal Greenwich?

Having enjoyed London to the full, a journey to the ‘Athens of the North’ awaits. Lucky competition winners arrive in the UNESCO City of Literature to enjoy a lavish two-night stay at the Caledonian Hotel, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel. ‘The Caley’, as it is affectionately known among Edinburgh locals, has embodied the very best in Scottish hospitality for over 100 years. Situated at the west end of Princes Street, this former Victorian railway hotel is nestled in the shadow of the historic Edinburgh Castle, just two minutes’ walk from the designer stores and fashionable bars of George Street. 

With two award-winning exquisite restaurants – The Pompadour by Galvin (three AA Rosettes) and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe (one AA Rosette) – luxurious bedrooms and the largest bathrooms of any hotel in Edinburgh, winners can sample the best of Scottish cuisine and company.

Winners of this luxury trip will also enjoy a London Day Pass that allows access to the stunning Hampton Court, Kensington Palace and the atmospheric Tower of London, while an additional Royal Yacht Britannia tour makes this holiday one to remember.
