A Manchester to Edinburgh getaway

Manchester to Edinburgh flights don't just whisk you from England's 'Second City' to Scotland's first, or even perhaps to another country, they take you to what seems sometimes to be another world. You'll swap redbrick terraces and Victorian warehouses for marbled neoclassical monuments and granite-faced tenements. Edinburgh also offers visitors a whole host of fantastic attractions, from the giddy delights of cruising the Royal Mile's shops and restaurants to the latest comedy shows at its world-famous comedy festival, the Fringe. There really will be something for everyone on your Manchester to Edinburgh getaway.

When can I book cheap flights from Manchester City to Edinburgh?

While prices for Manchester Edinburgh flights aren't exactly sky high, you can save money with a little bit of planning. The cheapest months to travel are October and November, with flights being cheaper in the early evening. Sunday is the cheapest day to head to Scotland's capital. If you book one to two months before you go, you'll miss the hike as departure day draws near. In terms of the weather, the best time to visit is from June to August, but winter does provide opportunities for low-season deals.

Arriving at Manchester Airport

Manchester Airport is located a few miles south of the city and is well connected by train and tram. Direct trains run from Manchester Piccadilly every 3 to 10 minutes and cost only GBP 4. For the same amount, you can also take the Metrolink tram, which operates every 12 minutes. From Chorlton Street station, you can also get an express coach to the airport, taking about 25 minutes.

Flying from Manchester City to Edinburgh

Travelling from Manchester to Edinburgh is really rather simple. Direct Manchester Edinburgh flights take just over an hour to fly the 200 miles that separates the two cities.

What to do when in Edinburgh

Edinburgh doesn’t lack in sight and spectacle – especially when it comes to the grand buildings and historic monuments that dominate its parks, hills and avenues. It isn’t called the 'Athens of the North' for nothing. Foreboding castles, such as the 500-year old Holyrood Palace, stand in the shadow of ancient volcanic hills. Located nearby is Edinburgh’s National Gallery, which is famed for its elegant neoclassical lines and for the treasures it hosts within its walls. But it's in the narrow streets of the old town that Edinburgh comes into its own. Here, in the one-time haunt of poets, painters and rogues, you can spend an evening or two in a stone-walled pub and lift a glass of single malt to toast this wonderful city.
