Directions:
The Edinburgh Corn Exchange is situated approximately 3.6 kilometers (2 miles) to the south west of Edinburgh city centre, within the moat area of the capital.

The Corn Exchange sits to the south of Gorgie Road (A71) and north of Slateford Road (A70) two of the main arterial routes into the city.
More precisely the site is situated to the west of Chesser Avenue. Access to the site may be taken from either New Mart or New Market Road.

Edinburgh Airport is situated some 10 kilometers (6 miles) to the west of the city centre with direct links to all main UK cities and a large number of European capitals. There is a frequent airport bus service that runs through haymarket to the city centre every 10 minutes (Every 30 minutes on a Sunday). Alternatively the number 35 to Ocean Terminal runs via the Corn Exchange. A Timetable can be found on www.lothianbuses.co.uk

The city is served by two main line railway stations: Haymarket and the larger Waverly station, providing direct links to main Scottish and UK destinations. A connecting train to Slateford station from Waverly station runs on the Edinburgh to Glasgow central Via Shotts line and runs approx 22mins past the hour. A timetable can be found on www.scotrail.co.uk

There are numerous Lothian buses that run frequently from the City Center Via Slateford and Gorgie (See map). These are 3 3a 33 & 25 (Gorgie), 4 & 44 (Slatford). Both stops are just before Chesser Avenue.
mazb81 found out the following bus info:
'you can get a 35 from airport to corn exchange. you can get a 44 from haymarket to corn exchange.
The 35 stops directly outside. The 44 stops outside slateford station. You will know you are at the right stop on the 44 as slateford
station is on your left hand side and a large asda is in frony of you. You will get of the bus 2 stops after a BP gargage and car cleaners forecourt on your right hand side. I f you stay on to long you will be in front of a Dominoes. It is ok as you just cross the road and turn the corner'

Accommodation:
Hotels:
There is a link on the Corn Exchange's website but they mostly look like "proper" expensive hotels. Here it is, just in case anyone wants it:
http://ece.laterooms.com/en/p2625/wl/Hotel...;rt=0,0&c=2

Hostels:
Following information from Sheyla:
I've found some hostels, with a price range between 11 (mixed dorm) and 13 , but they're not so close to the venue. But I did check on the local bus route and they're in it. The only problem is that apparently it's not a nightbus, so the last one from the venue would be around 23h30 (I may be wrong about this). The hostels are: High Street Hostel (11), Cowgate Tourist Hostel (11.85), Budget Backpackers (12) and Royal Mile Backpackers (13). You can find their details here Hostel Bookers.
Plus: Also, I was looking a bit more on the hostels and bus routes. Since I still can't find a hostel close to the venue, I've found a nightbus (N44) that passes on Slateford Station (which is pretty close to the venue) and goes all the way to the city centre - more precisely Princes St/Waverley, which led me to these other hostels: Princes St East Backpackers (12.02) and Edinburgh City Centre Hostel (12).

London/Edinburgh information from Sheyla:
I've done some research on prices and I've found a train ticket for London/Edinburgh on the 9th for 27.50 and Edinburgh/London on the 10th for 15.70. The trip takes about 4h30. The cheapest option though is by MegaBus, which is 2 return (also from London) but it takes about 9h.

I wub.gif you guys!!  Let me get back to you (obviously before Monday), okay?


I just checked and, for relatively cheap, I can make it to Edinburgh airport on Friday no sooner than 18:45 ... but with a bus shuttle (25min ride) I can be in the city center ... need to find out the exact location of this venue (I will be cutting it close, though).  I am getting to good at this trip plotting stuff!!  tongue.gif  Oh yay!!  I might actually get to be in Edinburgh again ... if only for a brief moment.

*sigh*  Okay, I am officially mental.  Not that I mind. Or care.  Hehe.
Now ... how easy will it be to get to Sheffield from there ... *is off to plot again*
