There is an excellent and frequent public transport facility to easily transport you from city centre to the corner of our street and a shuttle coach service operates from Airport to City Centre.
By bus, train or plane: From the city centre Buses Nos. 26 or 15 from outside Jenners store on Princes Street (A very short walk from the train station and disembarkation point for the airport coach) will deposit you at St. Philips Church, Joppa just at the corner of our street. The service has a five minute frequency and will whisk you from city centre to our street in a mere fifteen minutes. A taxi from city centre to our door is about twelve pounds.
By car: Approaching Edinburgh on the A1 go straight through first roundabout coming into Edinburgh (with Asda store on left - signed “Portobello”). At the next traffic lights turn right (Signed “Joppa” ). Turn first left into Brunstane Road, down to the bottom, cross the Abercorn Terrace junction and we are on the left. Approaching Edinburgh by a route other than the A1 proceed East on the South city bypass(A720) all the way to the Oldcraighall junction where you take the turnoff left for Edinburgh East and North and thereafter follow instructions as for the A1.
