Onward travel: Taxis, Trams and Buses in Edinburgh

There are a variety of options open to visitors to Edinburgh on their arrival at Waverly Station. Regular tram services link the city centre to the airport, as well as intervening stops and can be found just a short walk from the station.  An excellent bus service also links the station to the wider city as well as the surrounding areas. Should you prefer, a taxi rank is available adjacent to the station.

Shopping in Edinburgh

People come to Edinburgh for the shopping from across Scotland and beyond and it’s easy to see why. Just beyond the station lies Princes Street, which is home to a range of fashion outlets to suit every budget, from high street favourites to designer labels. If you’re looking for vintage finds then search no further than the Grassmarket, which has a range of antique books, retro clothing, and backdated vinyl. It is also home to a weekly Farmers Market where you can pick up fresh local produce. At the end of a long day shopping you will be able to choose from a plethora of cafés, bars or restaurants.

Culture in Edinburgh

There’s a huge amount to see and do in Edinburgh! Whether you wish to visit the Botanical gardens, or one of the many museums dotted around the city, there’s plenty to learn. Alternatively admire the architecture of the UNESCO protected city centre which turns 250 years old next year. If you visit during the summer you won’t be able to miss the impact of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on the local culture, however, even at other times there is plenty of theatre to discover at one of the many venues which showcase a wide variety of performances year-round.
