I’m planning a trip to Edinburgh and London for next July

Post by Guest »

Hi folks, I’m planning a trip to Edinburgh and London for next July.  Spending 4-5 days in each location. I plan on taking the train from Edinburgh to London.  A few questions:
  • Do I need a car or is public transit sufficient to get around?
  • I am loyal to Hilton brand hotels as I have a Amex Hilton card and am a diamond member.  Any Hilton recommendations for either city?
  • The Doubletree at EDI airport is the most reasonably priced.  Can I get to the sights from there or would I be better off in the city center?
  • Would love any recommendations on tours, restaurants, etc. for both locations
As an FYI, the timing and choice of locations are based on a couple of concerts we will be going to, so location and timing aren’t flexible.

Thanks!
Heidi

No car needed. Cabs are plentiful (stick with licensed cabs in both cities). Public transportation in London is easy.

Stay in city center in Edinburgh.

Look into a day trip into the countryside in both cities.

You won’t need a car. A car would be a huge pain. As for Edi airport accommodation, I’d give it a miss and aim for city center or near your venue.

I don’t have recs on tours in either city as I usually just explore on my own.

What group(s) are you seeing? Enjoy!!!
