Dubbed ‘The Athens of the North’ due to the Greek city’s influence on Edinburgh’s architecture during the 18th century, the city is accustomed to handling hordes of human traffic.

Coming in just behind London and Manchester, Edinburgh International Airport (EDI) is the UK’s third-busiest for air passenger numbers, with over 300 flights taking to the skies each day.

Flights to Edinburgh arrive almost as regularly as London buses, so getting to the Scottish capital is a doddle. The journey by air from London takes under one hour 30 minutes and the airport is located just 13 kilometres (8 miles) west of the city centre, making the entire door-to-door trip refreshingly quick.

British Airways offers direct flights to Edinburgh from London Gatwick (LGW), London City (LCY) and London Heathrow (LHR), while Ryanair flies direct to Edinburgh from London Stansted (STN), easyJet links Edinburgh with London Gatwick, London Luton and London Stansted, and Flybe runs a handful of the cheapest flights to Edinburgh from London City.
