The Edinburgh Waverley Station is a modern train station right in the center of Edinburgh. It is well marked and very easy to use and access. We used TransPennine train to Darlington from here.

Very centrally located in the centre of Edinburgh. Frequent serviced throughout Scotland and beyond. It was plenty of cafes, shops and bars. It also has a left luggage facility which is busy and fairly expensive. Expect a long wait at busy times.

Like, in London, there is a revamp of this wonderful old lady of days gone by. They have kept the wonderful old structure and are adding food outlets, shopping malls etc etc. Quite impressive

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
