                LRT Airlink buses take around 35 minutes to travel between the airport and Princes Street and the rail station, via Murrayfield and the zoo.

Road      Edinburgh sits on the Firth of Forth 45 miles east of Glasgow. It is about 100 miles north of Newcastle, and nearly 380 miles from London

From north-west England: Join the A1/A1(M). The road goes through Berwick-upon-Tweed on its way through to the eastern part of the city. The A1 connects to the A720 ring road from which the A7 will     take you into the city centre.

 From the south and north-east of England: Leave the M1 at J18 to join the M6. At J42 of the M6, take the A74 followed by the A74(M). You then have two options; either take the scenic route along the A702 or continue towards Glasgow and then take the M8 for a motorway connection to Edinburgh.

 Park & Ride        Two Park & Ride sites are available:

                Hermiston is serviced by Bus 25 which runs every 10 minutes to Gorgie

                Ingliston is served by Bus X48 to Murrayfield.

               

Car Parking:        There is no car-parking at Murrayfield for non-season ticket holders

By Bus   Edinburgh's bus station is in the New Town off St. Andrew's Square.

                Lothian Buses: 0131 555 6363

                www.lothianbuses.co.uk

                Services 12, 26, 31, 22 and 30 go past Murrayfield.

                First Bus: 08708 72 72 71

                www.firstgroup.com

                Services 20, X20, 21, 21A, 21C, X21, 22 and X22 go past Murrayfield

               

How to reach the Stadium: Murrayfield sits to the west of the city with the best access by foot from Roseburn Street.

Edinburgh Airport is located to the west of the city and if you are going from the airport straight to the ground it is best to get a taxi, although drop-off is likely to be a few minutes’ walk from the stadium due to                the traffic.

Both Waverley and Haymarket railway stations are within walking distance to Murrayfield. Haymarket is the closer and for fans who are just going to Edinburgh for the day, it can be easier to get off there as it is a five minute walk to the stadium down Haymarket Terrace and West Coates.

Murrayfield is a 20-minute walk from Waverley and on match-day, a walk down Princes Street is the best way to get to the ground. Just follow the tartan tide.

For those who don't like walking, a taxi costs around £10 from the station although the crowds will stop you getting dropped off right outside the ground.

There are at least five bus services from Princes Mall opposite Waverley Station that can drop you off near the ground. Take either Nos. 12, 26,31, 16 or the 900 to go to Murrayfield and it is a short walk to the  ground from the bus stop.

Probably the quickest way to go, however, is by rickshaw. It costs about £15 for three people from the city centre and it is also a good way of soaking up the atmosphere.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter
