Planning Your Trip

Situated on George Street in the heart of Edinburgh city centre and just a few minutes’ walk from Princes Street, there are plenty of quick and convenient ways to get to Assembly Rooms.

By bus, tram, or train

Public transport links are excellent, so if you’d like to make the greener choice, it’s a great way to travel. You’ll find Lothian Bus routes and timetables here – east-bound stops GF and GG are right across the road. If you’re coming from further afield, you’ll find information about travelling by bus at Citylink

Edinburgh’s tram service is also a great way to get around, with stops on Princes Street and St Andrew’s Square just a few minutes away here.

The venue is only five minutes from Edinburgh’s main station, Edinburgh Waverley – visit National Rail Enquiries to plan your journey.

By bike

We are pleased to be working with Spartan Cycle Support Systems to offer sheltered bike racks on site for the exclusive use of conference delegates (remember to bring your own bike lock).  A free staffed cloakroom is also available at the venue for bags and helmets.  

By car

Set your sat nav to EH2 2LR, or make your way into Edinburgh and follow signs for the city centre. There is limited on-street parking along George Street and in the surrounding streets (metered during the day), and multi-level car parks at Castle Terrace of the Omni Centre.
