During the first week in August I would like to travel to London and Edinburgh with a stop in the Derby area to do a bit of genealogical research. Unfortunately, no one can tell me the best way to travel between places. As I see it my options are:
1. Fly/take the train from London to Edinburgh, and day trip to Derby/Bakewell from there (via train).
2. Take the train from London to Edinburgh, stopping on the way in Derby.
Am I missing an option?
Is a day trip from Edinburgh to Darby actually a multi-day trip?
Any feedback is appreciated.
