Edinburgh Airport Taxis: Taxi Transfers to and from Edinburgh

Edinburgh has the busiest airport in Scotland, and the fifth busiest in the UK as a whole, handling around 10 million passengers per year.

Nearly half the flights from Edinburgh Airport are domestic, with over a million passengers travelling between there and London Heathrow during the year – and almost three million between Edinburgh and several other UK airports.

Popular with business and leisure travellers alike, the airport also handles flights to many European countries, as well as the USA, Canada, and popular North African destinations.

Whatever the purpose of your flight, the first step of the journey is to get to Edinburgh Airport – and this is where Airport Cars UK come in. We can take you there, whenever you need to be there, at your convenience – and we can do the same if you’ve just landed!

Top 10 things to do in Edinburgh

Scotland’s capital city is just a few miles from the airport, and is definitely worth a visit if you have the time to explore the delights on offer!

1) No trip to Edinburgh would be complete without at least a glance at its glorious castle – and a visit to the famous fortress is even better. You might want to cover your ears if you get there around lunchtime, when the “one o’clock gun” is fired!

2) See the Military Tattoo. Pipes and drums abound at this musical extravaganza, which is held during August. Expect fireworks!

4) Keep your festival-going official with a visit to the Edinburgh International Festival, which also runs in August. Enjoy top-flight classical music performances, opera, theatre and art exhibitions.

5) It’s not just August that sees an influx of visitors to Edinburgh, though – it’s a pretty city, and especially when the decorations are up for the festive season. Get your Christmas shopping done in the city centre’s department stores and boutiques, and check out the market!

6) There’s no New Year’s Eve celebration quite like Hogmanay, a fine Scottish tradition. Book a ticket for the Hogmanay Street Party or enjoy a candlelit concert.

7) Whatever the time of year, you can be sure that fine whisky will be available in Edinburgh, so enjoy it in one of the city’s pubs – and pay a visit to the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre after you’ve been to Edinburgh Castle. It’s just a short walk away!

8) Enjoy crime fiction? Take a Rebus tour and explore the famous fictional detective’s favourite haunts. It’s a must for Ian Rankin fans.

9) For more Scottish literature, why not relive your schooldays and sit down while someone reads you a story? The Scottish Storytelling Centre promises a great experience for people of all ages.

10) Enjoy the magnificent view from Arthur’s Seat, in Holyrood Park, and go for a leisurely stroll there – or a hike, if you have the energy!
