Hogmanay 2018: New Year’s Eve Party Train, London To Edinburgh

Edinburgh, Scotland | 31st December

HOGMANAY 2018! Party trains from London to Edinburgh

Last release of tickets currently on sale. Book now or risk missing out! 

Join us for Hogmanay 2018 where Edinburgh city centre comes alive with what could be the world’s best New Year’s Eve party. Jump on our party train from London to celebrate Edinburgh’s Hogmanay with Stoke travel.

Ring in the New Year Stoke/Scottish style, and if that means wearing a kilt and eating haggis, drinking your body weight in street booze, and having epic New Year pashes with strangers, then so be it. Hogmanay is one of the world’s great parties, the best New Year’s Eve party, filled with live performances, and music across four street party stages.

Hogmanay is Scottish for the last day of the year, and that’s what we’re here to celebrate. Join us in the streets as we sing Auld Lang Syne and gift each other lumps of coal. Doesn’t sound like fun? Then you need to know more about how the Scots love to party!

Party with us on the completely private Stoke Travel Express train from London to Edinburgh, before we pre-party at our exclusive venue, The Pear Tree. This package includes entry tickets to one of the world’s BIGGEST and famous Hogmanay street party festival, including the magnificent Midnight Moment with fireworks and music, are included as we say goodbye to 2018 and welcome in 2019, before we load up the return train trip from Edinburgh to London.

What to do during Hogmanay in Edinburgh

End and start the years right by getting into live music and DJs at the four street party stages and eight large screens that line the streets. Enjoy four fireworks displays on the hour from 9pm while the absolutely Instagram-worthy Edinburgh Castle stands in the background.

On top of that, immerse yourself in the traditions, stumble around the world famous architecture, and drink and be merry just like ringing in the New Year in Scotland warrants. Later, link hands (and maybe lips) with your new besties from Stoke, Scotland and beyond, before launching into a raucous rendition of Auld Lang Syne, THE New Year’s Eve song that was created specifically for this event.

Want to know more? Then check out our guide to Edinburgh, or the Hogmanay guide.

Hogmanay 2019 events

Every year international and world-famous Scottish acts play Hogmanay. Stoke Travel hits up the Street Party, which is filled with music and performances, the best party people, and this year complimentary Johnnie Walker whisky. Performers at the Street Party ringing in 2019 include: Scotland’s own Gerry Cinnamon, superstar DJ Judge Jules, Meute, Vistas, Elephant Sessions, Miracle Glass Company, Trendy Wendy and the event’s hosts The Mac Twins.

The trip to Hogmanay with Stoke Travel

Stoke Travel has commandeered an entire British Rail train to whisk us from London to Edinburgh. This is the place to pre-party, meet your fellow New Year’s Eve partiers, play drinking games, and generally act as if we own the train, which we do for the two days. On the way home we’ll be taking the same train, so you can safely store a change of comfort clothes for the New Year’s Day trip back so your 2019 begins as comfortably as possible.

  • Are we missing something?? Ask away in the Ask a Question Tab and we will chuck up an answer right here.

    What is Hogmanay? 
    Hogmanay is the Scottish word for ‘New Year’. Every year on the 31st of December thousands of people gather in Edinburgh to celebrate this festival with parades, food, carnival rides, drinks and of course fireworks! The biggest and most famous part of the Hogmanay festival is the street party which starts at 7pm on the 31st of Dec and finishes at 1am on the 1st of Jan.
    Do we need a Passport?
    No you do not need a passport when travelling to Scotland as it is part of the United Kingdom.
    What time does the train leave?
    The train departs London on the 31st of December at 10:18am and leaves from Edinburgh on the 1st of January at 5:45am. Please make sure to be at the station at least one hour beforehand.
    Can we leave our belonging on the train?
    You sure can, as you will be allocated into carriages but you will do so at your own risk. And some people aren’t as nice as some so Stoke will not take any responsibility for lost or stolen belongings.
    Can we bring alcoholic drinks on the train? 
    As part of the package you will get a bottle of bubbles to drink on the train, but you are also welcome to bring your own drinks on.
    Do I need to pack anything for a 24 hour trip? 
    What you pack is completely up to you. As you won’t be sleeping on this trip you don’t need to bring a change of clothes or any kind of toiletries but it would be a good idea to bring extra layers as it can get cold.
    Can we go to anything we want to at the festival?
    Sure can, these will be extra however and booked by you. There are hundreds of events, performances, artists, shows and hoes for you to get amongst!
    Do I have to wear a kilt?
    You won’t be able to go to any of the festivals without one so I guess yeah. Kidding you totally can but a kilt would be bloody mint.
    Is the train especially for this trip or will there be traveling people as well?
    All aboard the Stoke Travel express! This year we have hired the whole train, so it will only one us Stokies partying together into the new year. WOOO! 
    But wait when do I sleep?
    This is a 24 hours of madness trip – so be ready to bender! You won’t be able to sleep until you are back onboard the Stoke Express and are en route back to London.

    • Casey says:

      Left it til last minute to book New Years last year so Stoke’s Hogmanay trip was one of my friends only options. This ended up being the best NYE of my life, we had absolutely no expectations, the entire 24hrs was a whirlwind of drinking and partying on the train, in the pubs and in the street. 10/10

    • Leanne says:

      This was wild, such a good way to have a cheap NYE and get out of London!

    • Tiffany says:

      One of the funniest, loosest, exhilarating, best way to come into the new year! Stoke knows how to through a huge party and i couldn’t speak higher of these weirdos / trip if i could try!
