Getting around Edinburgh

For all its history, Edinburgh is uniquely compact and easy to navigate on foot. The city's has its historic Old Town and its rejuvenated New Town separated by an enjoyable 15 minute walk along the famous Princes Street past the imperious Castle that overlooks this fabulous city. Edinburgh has a good public transport system, served well by buses and trams, so Grassmarket, the Royal Mile, and the new town areas are just a brisk walk or a bus ride apart. The tram system just opened in 2014 and runs right through the heart of the city. There's plenty of stops on this easy to use system so you can get exactly where you want to go. Tickets for short rides are affordable, and it even connects the airport and the main train station, so it's a really convenient way to travel. Taxis are also available for getting around while on your stag weekend in Edinburgh. We are happy to provide good reliable taxi numbers to all groups who book their weekend with Maximise.

Things to see in Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle: Situated high on a hill overlooking the city for over a thousand years, Edinburgh Castle provides a stunning backdrop for this fantastic city.
The Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre: Located on The Royal Mile, the centre offers an great interactive "tour" of all things related to Scotland's first drink! There are over 200 varieties available for sampling at reasonable rates while on your stag weekend in Edinburgh. Why not get Maximise to pre-arrange a great stag weekend Whiskey Tasting Tour?
Festivals: From the festival that spawned them all, the world-famous four-week-long Edinburgh International Festival to the Fringe, Military, Jazz, Film, Book and Television festivals; there is something for everyone.
Hogmanay: The winter festive season is huge with concerts and other activities starting a few before Christmas. This really is one of the biggest celebrations anywhere in Europe! But beware, Edinburgh accommodation is at a premium and is in very high demand at this time.
Arthur’s Seat: Climb to the top of this extinct volcano for some great views of the city. At only 251m high the ascent isn't too strenuous and we're sure it's extinct!
Herts or Hibernian Scottish Premier League home matches: Why not enjoy the excitement of a SPL football game? Depending on fixtures, Maximise can help arrange a Saturday afternoon at Tynecastle or Easter Road ahead of a great stag night out.
