Cheap Flights to Edinburgh

Scotland’s ancient capital, known as the ‘Athens of the North’ for its many impressive buildings and monuments, is a must for culture aficionados. From the world-renowned Edinburgh International Festival during the summer to one of the world’s largest street parties at New Year, there’s always something going on.

With our cheap flights to Edinburgh, you can be guaranteed a ‘bonnie’ trip to this mesmerising city. Once at Edinburgh Airport you can get the express bus into town (around 25 minutes depending on traffic), or enjoy the newly built tram system, which will take 35 minutes to Princes Street in the heart of the city.

About Edinburgh

From the imposing site that is Edinburgh Castle, which dominates the city’s skyline, to the newly developed chic waterfront at Leith Docks, Edinburgh has a smorgasbord of offerings that will satisfy all tastes and travel styles. From the castle, you can take the Royal Mile through the Old Town, which is juxtaposed at the opposite end with the new Scottish Parliament building, designed by the late Spanish architect Enric Miralles. On the way there are lots of bars and restaurants where you can sample the world-famous Scottish food and drink - smoked salmon, Aberdeen Angus beef and a tipple (or two!) of Scotch whisky.
