By Air

Edinburgh Airport is approximately 14 miles, 25 minutes. A taxi from Edinburgh Airport to the venue should cost £25-£30 and Uber pricing is similar. There is a bus from the airport to Waverley Bridge (“Airlink”), which costs £7 (adult open return); from there, see below for directions from Waverley (the station).

By Car

This building is located within the Pollock Halls of Residence site on the Holyrood Park Road off the A7 near Arthur’s Seat in the south east of Edinburgh.
The Transport and Parking Office of the University of Edinburgh manages parking at the University. University car parks are for the use of permit holders only, and are subject to the university’s parking regulations. Permits are available for visitors to the university.

By Rail

Edinburgh Station (usually known as Waverley) is about two miles from Pollock Halls. From Waverley a taxi will take 5-10 mins and should cost ca. £7. For a bus from Waverley you should exit the station on to Princes Street and turn right. Cross to the other side of North Bridge and turn right on to the bridge. From the first bus stop, take a number 14, 30 or 33 to the Commonwealth Pool stop (the pool is presently boarded up and being refurbished). The adult single fare is £1.50 (you need to provide the exact money). Turn back along the way you have come and turn right on to Holyrood Park Road and you will see Pollock Halls on your right. This is likely to take about half an hour.
