TRAVEL

GETTING HERE AND GETTING AROUND!

©VISITSCOTLAND/KENNY LAM

Edinburgh is a leading world city – but it’s small enough for visitors to get around with ease

BY RAIL All trains to Edinburgh go to Waverley Station, off Waverley Bridge at the east end of Princes Street – this is where the main ticket booking office is located. Taxis collect passengers from the station concourse, but there is also a taxi rank on Waverley Bridge. All trains to the north and to the west coast, including Glasgow, also stop at Haymarket station.

BY AIR Edinburgh International Airport is eight miles west of the city centre on the A8 Edinburgh-Glasgow road. The airport has all the usual facilities, including a tourist information desk near International Arrivals, bureau de change, ATMs, bars and restaurants (on the first floor) and shops (ground floor and first floor). The tourist information desk, in the international arrivals area, will book accommodation and car hire. Two bus services, Airlink 100 and Guide Friday run between the airport and the main train station at Waverley Bridge.
