Travel Information

How to reach Edinburgh

By plane

Edinburgh International Airport (EDI) is served by most major airlines, including British Airways, American, Delta, United, KLM, Air France, EasyJet, Ryanair, flybe, and Etihad. There is direct service to/from London, New York, Chicago, Toronto, Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt, Madrid, and many other major hubs; EasyJet, Ryanair, and other low-cost airlines also connect EDI to smaller airports around Europe.

By car

Driving to the conference venue is not recommended since there is little all-day on-street parking within walking distance of the venue. It is suggested that attendees arriving by car look for accommodation with parking included and travel to the venue by walking or local bus services.

By train

The main railway station is Edinburgh Waverley, which is in the city centre. Waverley is a 10-15 minute walk from the conference venue and several hotels are located in between.

Edinburgh is easily reachable from London via York and Newcastle on the East Coast Main Line, via Birmingham and Carlisle on the West Coast Main Line, or from elsewhere in Scotland via ScotRail. Rail schedules and tickets are available from National Rail and from a number of train operator sites.

It is technically possible (but not necessarily advisable) to travel to Edinburgh by rail from mainland Europe by first traveling to London St Pancras via Eurostar.

By bus

Edinburgh's main bus station is on St Andrew Square, near Waverley rail station. There are buses to/from many other UK cities, serviced by Megabus, Citylink and National Express.
