Cruise Forth

Getting around from Leith

Leith is the ancient port of Edinburgh and is now integrated into the city.

From your ship it is an easy walk into the nearby shopping centre, or to see one of the most popular attractions The Royal Yacht Britannia.

For transport into the city centre, the recently opened tram extension provides a simple way to travel. Bus services 10 and 16 run frequently into the city centre. For unlimited travel around the city on Lothian Buses and the Tram, an Adult Day Ticket costs £5.00. Buses take cash (exact fare) or contactless payments (up to a maximum of £30). The Tram runs as far as Edinburgh Airport

Taxis will often be waiting on the quayside, just beyond the terminal building. Some cruise operators offer a shuttle service to the city centre by coach. There are no rail connections in Leith, and your nearest station is Edinburgh Waverley.

There is also a hop on- hop off service - The Majestic Tour or Bright Bus Tours which will take you around major city attractions including the Castle and the Royal Mile.

It is also possible to walk into Leith, exploring the many shops and eateries.
