Travelling to Edinburgh
Edinburgh is extremely easy to get to by rail, with a journey time of under 5 hours from London thanks to the National Express line which is the fastest route in the UK. Book your tickets in advance and you could get from London to Edinburgh for instance, from £14.60.
For a shorter journey time, Edinburgh Airport has regular flights arriving from most major UK airports. The city is also well serviced by the National Express and the roads into Edinburgh are easy to navigate and surprisingly clear – there are less cars the further north you go, see?
Accommodation in Edinburgh
If you are planning to visit Edinburgh during one of its many festivals then you’d be advised to book in advance as the Edinburgh festivities are internationally renowned and hotels get booked up quickly.
One idea would be to book a hen weekend package in Edinburgh where the hotel accommodation is included. If that doesn’t grab your fancy then you can choose from glitzy hotels to bring out the glamour puss in your hens or more basic budget accommodation so that you have more money left over to spend on … shopping!
