The e-Science Institute is less than 15 minutes walk from Waverley rail
station (please use our map for directions),
and from St Andrews square bus stations. For travel links and information
on how to get to Edinburgh see our webpage Transport
to and from Edinburgh & Glasgow.
It is approximately 20 minutes by taxi from Edinburgh airport (40 minutes
by bus). If taking a taxi from Waverly station it
is worth noting only certain taxi companies are allowed to pick up from
within the station, so if there's a long queue it's probably worth walking
out onto the main road. Edinburgh taxis are all
black cabs. Taxis are regulated by the City authorities and are able
to provide quotations prior to booking and expense receipts.
From the west end of Princes Street.
The National e-Science Centre, e-Science Institute is on South College
Street, which is along a side street just off the continuation of North
Bridge heading south from Princes Street. Princes Street is closed to
cars travelling east. The easiest route from the west side of the city
centre is to turn left into Charlotte Square, then right onto Queen
Street. At the east end of Queen Street there is a large roundabout
(beside John Lewis and the Warner Village Cinema complex). Turn right
at the roundabout up Leith Street, which will take you to the east end
of Princes Street. Go straight on at the traffic lights and up North
Bridge (the Balmoral Hotel is on the corner of Princes Street and North
Bridge). Then just after Chambers Street, South College Street is the
next on the right hand side of road.
There is very limited street parking around the e-Science Institute.
