For when you are here
Once you’ve arrived in Edinburgh, you will want to get exploring. The city centre is surprisingly compact with most Fringe venues located no further than 30 minutes walk from each other as long as you don't mind the occasional hill or staircase. If you fancy resting your feet or venturing futher Lothian Buses will get you all over town, or you may want to take the Tram which connects the airport and the west of the city to the centre. Edinburgh City Cabs and Uber also operate to whizz you around as required.
