Please see below for the list of confirmed tour dates for 2022.

Click on the name of the tour to be taken through to the operator's website, where you will be able to find out more about the trip and check ticket availability.


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.
