Haymarket Station is Edinburgh’s second main train station (after Waverley). The station is currently being redeveloped and will brighten up this corner of Edinburgh’s beautiful West End.
The station is open as works continue. Your train will most likely stop at Haymarket if you are heading West or North from Edinburgh.
Haymarket is a great base for exploring the city centre (only 10 min walk to Princes Street) and a great base for seeing the sites to the West of the city – Edinburgh Zoo, Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh International Conference Centre, and the Pentland Hills amongst many other sites.
