Our Scottish capital Edinburgh was, until very recently, in dire need of a transport solution. Unlike Glasgow’s clockwork orange, Edinburgh Trams serve an overground service and allow for the sights to be seen, at the ease of commuting spanning 14km from East to West of Edinburgh.
Since opening on May 31st 2014, Edinburgh Trams have, obviously received a plethora of press igniting the topic of funds and duration taken to create the long awaited transport link. With this thought aside, Edinburgh Trams prove an invaluable services to the city and we have collate the top 5 things NOT to do, whilst on the Edinburgh Trams.
Don’t NOT look out the Windows
The Edinburgh Trams maybe sleek, but Edinburgh is far more beautiful. With striking views of the Edinburgh Castle from Princes Street, there’s not much not to look at.
Don’t Kick the Rugby Ball on Board
With the Rugby World Cup just round the corner, the country is daft for Rugby – especially with Murrayfield Stadium as one of the key stops en-route. Make sure you keep that rugby ball with you before you jump off – you don’t want to lose it whilst you’re on-board the Edinburgh Trams!
Don’t Panic. There’s WiFi on Board!
The Edinburgh Trams have Wi Fi on board – perfect as a last minute booking solution, weather update or if spontaneity grabs you! Check out Parliament House Hotel’s internet special to book a last minute bargain – see here – the perfect on board booking solution.
Don’t Leave your Passport Behind
We have all been there. It’s a horrible feeling but, a good nights sleep before you fly set you up well so-to be forgetful before you fly. Stay at Parliament House Hotel before you fly, catch the tram at St. Andrews Square or York Place and glide straight into Edinburgh Airport just 40 minutes later.
Don’t Forget the Krispy Kreme
Thankfully, the Edinburgh Park station on the Edinburgh Trams line has the famous Krispy Kreme, perfect for a sugar rush prior to you flying or, the perfect pick me up once you’ve landed before you spend your week in Edinburgh at Parliament House Hotel.
