Fact file on flights from London to Edinburgh

Taking the high road has never been more tempting, thanks to today’s quick and easy air connections from London to Edinburgh. With typical London-Edinburgh flights lasting less than 1 hour 30 minutes, you’ll soon be snapping selfies with the bagpipers in Princes Street. Flybe flies out of London City Airport direct to Edinburgh, while British Airways departs from its high-profile base at Heathrow. Low-cost favourites EasyJet offers a choice of three London hubs – Gatwick, Luton and Stansted – while Ryanair also runs the 320-mile Stansted-Edinburgh route.

When’s the best time to book cheap flights to Edinburgh from London?

Edinburgh’s major high season comes in late summer when the city is fit to burst with world-famous festivals. For three weeks in August/September, the International Festival brings the cream of musicians, singers, dancers and actors to the city’s most prestigious venues, while comedy legends share the far-flung Fringe stages with scruffy student drama groups and wannabe pop stars. Demand also peaks around Christmas/New Year, when expat Scots head home for the festivities and visitors flood into Princes Street for its famous Hogmanay party. If you’re planning to fly to Edinburgh during these busy periods, it’s essential to book well ahead for the best choice of ticket prices and availability.

Jetting off from London

London’s five airports are easily accessible by public transport. Gatwick, Heathrow and Stansted all have direct express trains that run non-stop. The Gatwick Express from Victoria takes around 30 minutes, while Paddington to Heathrow is just 15 minutes. Stansted is linked to Liverpool Street station, with the journey taking less than an hour. If you’re flying from London City, simply swipe your Oyster card on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR). The train from St Pancras to Luton Parkway takes around 30 minutes, followed by a short shuttle to the airport – ask for the fare to be included when you buy your train ticket to save rummaging for change on the bus.

Getting from Edinburgh Airport to the city centre

Edinburgh Airport is around 8 miles from the city centre, with excellent onward transport connections. The Airlink 100 express and N22 night buses reach Waverley Bridge in around 25 minutes, while the tram takes around 35 minutes to Princes Street or Haymarket Station. If you can’t wait to drop off your bags and start exploring, hire a cab to bring you direct to your hotel from the rank outside the terminal – pre-book on the airport’s official website and your taxi will be waiting for you when you land.

Edinburgh’s special magic

Edinburgh and culture go hand in hand, but there’s more to this ancient capital than festivals. When the circus leaves town, the city rediscovers its own special magic. Walk to the top of Calton Hill for an overview of its unique UNESCO Heritage-listed streetscape, split between the winding medieval alleyways of the old town and the Georgian splendour of the new town. Then wander down to the old port of Leith to sample freshly landed seafood in one of the cosy bistros that have transformed its dockside.
