Edinburgh by train
If you don't fly direct to Edinburgh and begin your adventure in London
, I recommend the 4.5 hour train ride from St. Pancras to the Waverley railway station. If it's not a foggy day, you'll experience the beautiful changing countryside and landscapes, you can even people and farm animal watch along the way! I love traveling by train, no check-ins & security to deal with, and you arrive directly in Edinburgh's city center which is about a 4 minute walk to the Old City.
