Train Edinburgh → Glasgow
Duration 45 - From $25
Castles, colleges, kilts and so much more Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland since the 15th century, is divided into the Old Town and the New Town. Although “New” in this case means over 200 years old. What's connecting these sections of town is the bench-lined Princes Street Gardens and Edinburgh's main train station, Edinburgh Waverly. If you're flying into Scotland use easy Edinburgh Express Air Link bus, which brings you to the center of the city in just 25 minutes. Drop your bags at the hotel and then visit any of the 30 major attractions covered by the pass. What to see ? Visit the National Galleries of Scotland, tour the 16th century Lauriston castle or cavort with the animals at the Edinburgh Zoo. Top of your trip (and glass) with a visit to the Glenkinchie Distillery for the city's famed single malt whiskey. Learn more about Edinburgh
The complete opposite of Edinburgh Although Glasgow and Edinburgh, the two major cities in Scotland, are separated by a mere 46 miles, they are on opposites coasts and opposite ends of the tourist spectrum. Glasgow's roots were established in the fishing/shipping industries centered around the river Clyde, but now the city has transformed from gritty industrialism into a trendy metropolis of the arts. Glasgow has earned the labels "liberal" and "edgy" – thanks to the modernism found in art galleries and architecture. In addition to wielding the well-known Scottish dry humor, the Glaswegians are lively and friendly, and hold nothing back especially in their nightlife. Glasgow has two mainline rail stations, both centrally located. The larger Glasgow Central services travel to Edinburgh and throughout Scotland. The First TransPennine Express takes travelers quickly to Manchester Airport and the Virgin Trains service to Birmingham and London's Euston station. The Glasgow Queen Street station also operates trains to Edinburgh as well as trains to and from towns in rugged northern Scotland. Learn more about Glasgow
