Trains at Edinburgh Airport
Waverley is the main railway station in Edinburgh and it can be easily reached by taxi or bus. From here services operate to Glasgow and all over the UK. Most train services also stop at Edinburgh Haymarket station which is on the main bus route between the airport and the city centre.
Edinburgh Waverley railway station is in the centre of the city and is the second largest mainline railway station in the UK - the largest being London Waterloo. It is the northern terminus of the East and West Coast Main Lines and is the second busiest railway station in Scotland, with only Glasgow Central handling more passengers.
The station is located in a steep, narrow valley between the city's old and new towns with Princes Street (the main shopping area) running alongside it. Edinburgh Waverley is currently undergoing a modernisation project with additional routes and structural changes to improve disabled facilities with the stairs from the concourse to Princes Street being covered and including escalators & lifts.
Edinburgh Haymarket Trains
There is also a Railway Station called Edinburgh Haymarket which is on the main bus route between the city centre and the airport. It is a major commuter and long-distance destination, located quite centrally near the West End with services from the station serving areas of Scotland west and north of Edinburgh including Fife and Glasgow, local lines to the east and the trunk route down the west coast of the UK.
