which train station in Edinburgh?

by robin888


I will be taking the train from Manchester to Edinburgh.When I book the ticket, there are 3 train stations in Edinburgh - Haymarket, Park or Edinburgh. I am probably staying somewhere Blackfriars near High Street. Which station should I go to? I would like to go to Liverpool and I understand that a day trip is possible. What places should i visit in Liverpool? thanks for your help.

Just find the train which suits on

Only put 'edinburgh' into the searchboxand click on 'edinburgh (all stations).

You will see that Manchester trains go to Edinburgh Waverley (if you click on 'EDB' on the results table you'll get more info).

You can also find Manchester>Liverpool train times, details and fares on the nationalrail site.

Advance fares are available on some trains on some routes on some days..these can be substantially cheaper. You can buy them at the station up to 6pm the day before you travel. Worth checking for these for both your journeys.

Have only been to Liverpool twice, too long ago to give relevant info. Have a look at the VT Liverpool pages,and at the official tourist info site here:

Waverley is closest to where you are staying, Haymarket is to the West of the centre with Edinburgh Park being on the outskirts.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Graduation in McEwan Hall

by Nemorino

"Many of our graduates will be happy to learn that the construction of this magnificent hall was financed entirely by profits made from the sale of beer."

So said one of the speakers at the graduation ceremony.

The hall, which was opened in 1897, was in fact paid for by one William McEwan, the founder of a brewing company of the same name. To this day, most Edinburgh pubs serve McEwan beers and ales, among other brands.

It really is a large and impressive building, and it contains a huge loud imperial organ that makes you feel as though you were back in the days of the British Empire when it starts playing.

Edinburgh Tip

by feline01

I love animals (that's why I don't eat or wear them) and the story of Greyfriars Bobby and the grave moves me every time I visit Edinburgh. Greyfriars Kirk, located on Greyfriars Place near Grassmarket is a lovely, wee church but it's the because of the graveyard that you'll find the tourists here. Go to the corner of George IV Bridge & Candlemaker Row to see the statue of Greyfriars Bobby. After his owner died, the wee Skye terrier spent everyday holding vigil next to his owner's grave in the churchyard. And he did this for 14 years only leaving to be fed at the nearby pub once a day. And some people think that animals don't have feelings!!!

The Skirl o' the Pipes

by scottishvisitor

Lone Pipers
Twin Pipers
Mass Pipers

We saw this piper waiting for the Bride at Edinburgh Castle's St. Margaret's Chaple. Other pipers in the city may have full Highland Dress and some will have a Scottish Rugby Union Top and of course the all important kilt. Many pipers busk in the city's Old Town a favourite place for lone buskers is outside Deacon Brodie's Tavern - if you like the music throw them some coins. If you would like to see mass pipers then visit the Edinburgh Tattoo

Arthur's Seat and Salsbury Craggs

by susancallus

Arthur's Seat and Salsbury Craggs was used as a hunting ground for the Scottish Kings. Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano. It only takes about one to two hours to climb to the top! The view from up there is tremendous. It's a good idea to go their on your last day in Edinburgh as a last sceney, while you can relax and enjoy the panoramic views of this beautiful city.

Designer Heaven?

by zizkov about Cruise

Not quite my style (actually not quite my income would be more accurate) Cruise is a well established designer clothes store. Several branches in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The picture is of the shop off the Royal Mile, there is another in George St (New Town). Expensive street fashion: mens and womenswear. You probably want to dress up a bit just to go in (!)
