A Beautiful for a Beautiful City
Between the hills and the sea, Scotland's capital has one of the most beautiful settings in the world. With streets steeped in history and a thriving cultural scene, Edinburgh offers the perfect balance between all things traditional and contemporary.
Add to this the features which have made Edinburgh famous - exquisite architecture, the dramatic thoroughfare of Prince's Street, the brooding castle in the sky or the renowned Royal Botanic Garden - and your trip to Edinburgh will be a jewel to treasure forever.
Edinburgh’s equivalent of Temple Bar is the Grassmarket and Cowgate area while Broughton Street is the main gay area in the city.
No other city tells you its story in a more up-front fashion, but few other cities have as many secrets waiting, hidden, for those willing to take the time to turn off the high road, through a dark archway or down a hidden, cobbled street.
Princes Street is the main shopping thoroughfare in Edinburgh where you can find the main department stores.
George Street is for the fashionistas, as it’s lined with chic clothes shops while the Royal Mile has everything from traditional Scottish woolen sweaters to woolen belly-button warmers!
Public bus services stop outside the UK Arrivals doors on the terminal forecourt.
An express bus service - the Airlink 100 - operates frequently to Edinburgh city centre and takes about 25 minutes and terminates at Waverley Bridge near the main railway station.
Alternatively you can hire a taxi to bring you right to the door of your hotel.
