Getting Here

Getting to Edinburgh couldn’t be easier. Not only is Edinburgh Airport the country’s fastest growing airport, it’s also the country’s most connected, with flights arriving from places as close as London and Manchester and as far away as New York, Abu Dhabi and beyond every day also making it the perfect gateway to the rest of Scotland.

If you’re travelling by rail, the city’s two main stations – Edinburgh Waverley and Edinburgh Haymarket – welcome passengers non-stop from as far south as Plymouth, as well as from the Scottish highlands. Direct journeys from London are as little as 4 hours and 21 minutes from Kings Cross St Pancras.

When you’re here, it couldn’t be easier to get around. Both rail stations place you right by the city centre, while excellent bus and tram links from the airport will bring you to where the action is quickly and easily.

Lothian Buses and Edinburgh Trams are renowned for their excellent service, while the city’s taxis will get you where you need to go quickly and with great service – for everything else, Edinburgh’s compact size means one of the best ways to get to know it is on foot.

Vistors can also off-set the carbon produced by their journey to Edinburgh when purchasing event tickets. More details can be found on our Sustainability page.

Feeling lost? The city’s free and unlimited Wifi means you can always use your favourite map app to find your way and learn about what’s around you.
