We will soon announce tour dates for 2021, following the cancellation of the 2020 schedule due to coronavirus.

While we understand interest in Flying Scotsman will be extremely high, we urge those wishing to view it on its tour dates to do so from a safe vantage point. It is vital that spectators do not venture onto the railway, particularly when it is on the mainline as a full timetable of regular services will also be running.

Please note this is not a full list of tour dates. Additional trips are still in the works—details will be published on this page once confirmed.
