Edinburgh travel tips

Unless you’re landing in the Scottish capital by plane, chances are fair that you will be arriving by train from elsewhere in the UK. Edinburgh Waverley on Princes Street in Old Town is the main train station for the city, close to a number of Edinburgh hotels, including the Scotsman Hotel, Hilton Edinburgh Carlton and the Radisson Blu Hotel Edinburgh City Centre. If you prefer a cheap hotel in Edinburgh that’s close by, try the Jurys Inn Edinburgh.  All are available to book through momondo. In New Town, look at the Balmoral Hotel or Old Waverley Hotel, which is another cheap hotel in Edinburgh. For public transport, you’ll be using Lothian Buses. This is how Edinburghers get around the city, so you’ll be in good company. Most routes run via Princes Street, which is where the train station is and is the street that separates Old Town and New Town. Incidentally, Lothian Buses also manage the branded public tour buses, the night bus service and the airport bus link, so look for options for a frequent use pass.

The Royal Mile in Old Town is Edinburgh's most famous city street, which runs between Edinburgh Castle in Old Town and the Palace of Holyrood house in Holyrood. Here you will find the Ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile - Hunter Square and the Ibis Edinburgh Centre South Bridge - Royal Mile. As Edinburgh's historical heart is quite small, these are within walking distance of each other, and also close to Princes Street if you prefer to catch a bus. Other attractions include the Scottish National Gallery in the New Town and the National Museum of Scotland in the Old Town. If you're a lover of beautiful churches, then don't miss St. Giles' Cathedral, also in the Old Town. Edinburgh’s Old Town and New Town together comprise a World Heritage Site as declared by UNESCO. Most of these places are fairly close to the Edinburgh Waverley train station, so when you book your hotel in Edinburgh, keep this in mind.

As the Old and New Town on either side of Princes Street, they are a good option due to their central location, as is the famous Royal Mile. When in Scotland, you have to try a hot toddy. It has been suggested that this quintessential Scottish winter drink was invented in the 18th Century. For traditional Scots fare, haggis is made with minced sheep’s heart, liver and lungs, mixed with oatmeal, onions and spices, all cooked in the stomach of the animal. Edinburgh's port of Leith has a vibrant bar and restaurant scene, with good bus connections to the New Town.

If it’s Scotland, then it has to be Scottish bagpipes. The annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo takes place at Edinburgh Castle, accessible on foot from the Old and New Town, or by bus from Princes Street. For Auld Lang Syne, the Edinburgh Hogmanay which takes place at Princes Street Gardens runs for four days beginning on New Year’s Eve and includes processions, concerts and fireworks. Once you’ve soaked up all these experiences, your soft Edinburgh hotel bed will be crying for you.
