The Adventures of Django and Arya

Caledonian Sleeper Train

The Caledonian Sleeper train is a pet friendly overnight gateway between Scotland and London. Cats and dogs are very welcome to travel in your private room, and other types of pets will also be taken into consideration. As the name suggests, the great thing about the Caledonian Sleeper is that it’s an overnight service, therefore you can snooze away the journey with your dog, and arrive at your destination feeling refreshed! Trains travel from London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Aberdeen and Fort William. We used the service from London Kings Cross to Glasgow Central Station when travelling with Django from Portugal to Scotland. It was a long journey to get to Kings Cross, so we all welcomed the rest once aboard the Sleeper. You can leave a review to let other pet travellers know about your experiences on the Caledonian Sleeper train.

Caledonian Sleeper Train Pet Policy

Up to two pets can join you on board, and there’s no charge for their travel. Though, you will have to pay a £30 per room cleaning fee if you travel with a pet. Be aware that pets can’t travel in the seated carriage on the Caledonian Sleeper train.

The Caledonian Sleeper is a great option for travelling between Scotland and England with a pet, or If you’re returning to Scotland from continental Europe with a cat or dog. In this case, you can travel by Eurotunnel Le Shuttle then ride the Caledonian Sleeper for the final leg of the journey home. However, you do need a car to use the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle service but you can use a taxi service, such as Folkestone Taxis.
