Newcastle to Edinburgh

 

Your megabus.com journey from Newcastle will take you to the centre of Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is a city famed for its beauty and history, and perhaps most famous of all is Edinburgh Castle. Looming over the city, and situated on volcanic rock, no one can fail to be impressed by this architectural feat. Inside, it houses the Crown Jewels alongside 3 military museums and several exhibitions. Learn about more of Edinburgh’s history at the National Museum of Scotland, or explore the arts at one of the galleries.

The Royal Mile is not to be missed, which runs from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. St Giles Cathedral lies along this route, which is admired for its intricate architecture, and stained glass windows.

Take time to explore Holyrood Park, and hike up to Arthur’s seat; one of Edinburgh’s 2000 year old hill forts, where you can find spectacular views of the entire city. Holyrood Park is home to Holyrood Palace; the Queens’ residence in Scotland.

Be sure to take a stroll through the medieval “old town” of Edinburgh. Stop in a local pub and sample some Scottish culinary delights; haggis, neeps and tatties, finished off with traditional fruitcake, and, of course, a glass of Scotch whiskey. If you’re lucky enough to be staying here during Hogmanay, get ready to join in street parties across the city.

It’s very simple to travel to Edinburgh with megabus.com, by visiting megabus.com or picking up the phone. Enjoy air conditioned coaches, a 20kg luggage allowance, and free Wi-Fi where possible.
