From the Airport:
Get the Airport Bus (No 100) to Waverly Train Station and then follow directions as below.

From Waverly Train Station:
We are about a 10-minute walk from Waverley Train Station.
Exit the station at Waverley bridge (the other exit from the train station is onto Princes St). Now, facing the castle, go left on Waverley Bridge and walk to the end, where there is a small mini-roundabout. Turn right here onto Market Street and walk up the hill to the end. Then turn left onto Bank Street; follow this road around and up to the traffic lights. Continue through the lights onto George 1V Bridge then turn right at Victoria Street. Walk down to the bottom of this street and then turn left. You can't miss us. We are on the corner of Candlemaker Row.
