Queensferry is a town in Edinburgh, Scotland, located about five kilometres from the Edinburgh International Airport and just a few minutes from the city centre. The town is named for Queen Margaret, the 11th queen of Scotland, who oversaw the beginning of the first ferry service to go across the Firth of Forth. There are now two bridges that span the Firth of Forth, both of which are popular attractions in Queensferry. There are also a number of interesting historic buildings, great pubs, and chic restaurants that draw visitors from all over Edinburgh.
- Visit Edinburgh on New Year's Day, when residents of Queensferry take part in The Loony Dook tradition with an ice cold, refreshing dip into the Firth of Forth, followed by a few hours spent in the pub.
- Stroll down the historic High Street in Queensferry to marvel at the beautiful homes that flank either side of the street, some of which were built as early as the 15th century.
- Enjoy the freshest seafood available in Edinburgh whilst appreciating spectacular views of the Firth of Forth at The Boathouse, one of the most romantic restaurants in Queensferry.
Queensferry is well connected to Edinburgh's efficient public transportation system. The easiest way for travellers to arrive to the city is via train from either the Haymarket or Waverly stations, both of which depart a few times every hour. Guests should get off at the Dalmeny station that is about a ten-minute walk from the centre of Queensferry. Several bus routes also that pass through Queensferry, connecting it with the Edinburgh city centre and the surrounding suburbs. The Edinburgh Airport is just five kilometres away and may be reached by bus.
