About Edinburgh Area Guide > Haymarket

A mere five minutes from the West End and centre of Edinburgh, Haymarket is a perfect central point for exploring the city as well as a gateway to the rest of Scotland.


A mere five minutes from the West End and centre of Edinburgh, Haymarket is a perfect central point for exploring the city as well as a gateway to the rest of Scotland.  
 

Trains to local and national rail hubs depart from the newly upgraded Haymarket rail station and there are superb transport links into the city as well as access to Edinburgh's cycle paths.
 

From Haymarket you can walk within twenty minutes to the Royal Mile, Grassmarket and Edinburgh Castle and also take a walk or cycle along the Union Canal which runs from Edinburgh to Falkirk. A short stroll in the direction of Bruntsfield will take you to The King's Theatre which stages many contemporary and historical plays, and the famous Cameo cinema. And if you're looking to entertain the kids then the Fountain Park entertainment centre at nearby Fountainbridge includes a cinema, soft play, several restaurants and ten pin bowling alley.
 

Edinburgh's recently re-established tram network runs from Haymarket to York Place in Broughton where there are more shops, restaurants, bars and theatres to explore.
