To get to Edinburgh’s main station which is Edinburgh Waverly it can take a lengthy 4 to 5 hours travelling but travelling by train can be the better option as travelling by car can take 6 to 7 hours, with having to stop in between for driving breaks could take even longer than that. Depending on when you travel will depend on how many changes the train makes, you can take a walk over to Kings Cross and get a direct train taking you straight to Edinburgh Waverly, or you can change at York after a couple of hours to get to Edinburgh.
Train fares can be fairly hefty between £120.40 to £200 but what more can you expect when you’re travelling from one end of the United Kingdom to the other, airplanes fairs can be much more than that and also travelling by car will cost a bomb in petrol or gas.
EnvironmentThere is 403 miles between Edinburgh and St Pancras meaning the carbon emissions harming the earth’s atmosphere and environment must be extraordinary, but only if you are driving by car because driving produces 362.7 pounds of CO2 emissions, although if you were to travel by train you would save over half of those emissions as train travel produces 141.05 pounds of CO2 emissions, that is still a massive amount but if everyone were to travel by train instead of car the outcome would help save the environment. Also, it will save you in petrol for your car too.
