Haymarket is located on the west side of Edinburgh, Scotland and is best known as the location of one of Edinburgh’s central railway stations. Haymarket is home to an array of lively pubs, restaurants and cafes; however, just a short distance away this bustling neighbourhood becomes a tranquil, green haven lined with terraced Victorian houses and public gardens. Although Haymarket is dappled with historic buildings, it has a very contemporary, youthful atmosphere, for the thriving West End is a favourite among artists seeking inspiring cultural experiences, as well as trendy shoppers looking for eclectic finds in swanky boutiques.
- Enjoy one of the many rugby tournaments hosted at Murrayfield Stadium, home to the Scottish Rugby Union, as well as thousands of rowdy rugby fans.
- Visit Haymarket’s sombre Heart of Midlothian War Memorial, which commemorates players of the Heart of Midlothian Football Club who perished in First World War.
- Come face-to-face with penguins and other exotic animals at the Edinburgh Zoo where zoologists are preserving over 1,000 species of animals in Edinburgh.
Haymarket’s train station is the second largest station in Edinburgh and acts as a transportation hub for travel around the city. To get to Haymarket from within Edinburgh, simply get off the train at Haymarket station and let the exploration begin. Edinburgh is a city especially easy to navigate on bike; in fact, many of the locals enjoy biking around the city on the Water of Leith bikeway that snakes throughout Edinburgh. For those travelling by air, there is an Airlink 100 bus that goes directly from Edinburgh Airport to Haymarket station.
