Finding us by train

Edinburgh has two train stations: Haymarket in the West End, and Waverley which is the main station in the city centre. Both stations are well connected to bus and taxi services.

To take the bus to the University please consult the Lothian Buses Route Map.  The University is shown on the route map as ‘Potterow’ (underneath the letter ‘H’). Alternatively, the bus stops on Nicholson Street (underneath the letter ‘G’) are only a short walk from the University’s George Square Campus where the workshops take place.

To walk to the University from Waverley Station (takes around 30 minutes) exit the station onto Princes Street and facing the street turn right. Walk to North Bridge and turn right onto the bridge, following it along as it turns into South Bridge and Nicholson Street. From Nicholson Street turn right onto West Nicholson Street and then cross the road onto Crichton Street ahead on the right. This will take you to the top of George Square - walk in a straight line across the top of the square.  The building in the furthest corner is the Chrystal Macmillan Building.

Finding us by coach

Edinburgh’s St Andrews Coach Station (on St Andrew’s Square) is situated in the city centre not far from the train station. Buses depart there all day long so it is easy to catch a bus to the University – please consult the Lothian Buses Route Map.

The University is shown on the route map as ‘Potterow’ (underneath the letter ‘H’). Alternatively, the bus stops on Nicholson Street (underneath the letter ‘G’) are only a short walk from the University’s George Square campus where the workshops take place.

To walk to the University from the coach station (takes around 35 minutes) exit the station onto St Andrew’s Square. With your back to the station turn left onto South Saint Andrew Street and then left onto Princes’ Street. Cross the street and turn left, following the Princes’ Street around as it curls right and turns into North Bridge. Continue along North Bridge as it turns into South Bridge and Nicholson Street. From Nicholson Street turn right onto West Nicholson Street and then cross the road onto Crichton Street ahead on the right. This will take you to the top of George Square - walk in a straight line across the top of the square.  The building in the furthest corner is the Chrystal Macmillan Building.
