Edinburgh - Where is it
Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, is located in Southern Scotland on the east coast. The distance in miles from some of Britain’s major cities are as follows:
|London||398 miles / 640 Kilometres|
|Glasgow||45 miles / 72 Kilometres|
|Newcastle||120 miles / 192 Kilometres|
|Manchester||216 miles / 348 Kilometres|
|Birmingham||292 miles / 470 Kilometres|
Edinburgh is an international gateway; therefore travelling to the city poses few problems. It is also easily accessible by rail and road. Once there, the compact city centre means it is best explored by foot. Parking can be a nightmare but if the hills prove to be too much it is well served by taxis and busses. Alternatively, take to two wheels and travel by bike!
The conference is taking place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, which is located in the centre of Edinburgh. Most hotels and attractions in the centre of Edinburgh including Edinburgh Castle are all within a short walk of the conference centre.
