How to get to Edinburgh

By plane

Edinburgh International Airport serves many UK and international cities.

There are three options to get to the city centre:

  • Airlink 100: this is a shuttle bus which departs right outside the terminal and arrives at Waverley station
  • Tram: the tram stop is outside the terminal and the stop next to Waverley station is called "St Andrews Square"
  • Taxi: right outside the terminal.

The shuttle bus and the tram take about the same time (25-35 minutes), cost about the same (8-9 GBP), have the same frequency (every 10 minutes), and arrive at almost the same location. The price for a taxi is around 25-35 GBP.

By train

Edinburgh's main train station is called Waverley Station and is well connected to most UK cities. There are direct half-hourly connections between London and Edinburgh with LNER.
