A taxi driver's guide to Edinburgh

Given the relative size of Scotland’s capital, sometimes it can be surprisingly costly to take an Edinburgh taxi. In conjunction with our Partners we pride ourselves on offering a superior service with comfort, value and competitive prices at the heart of everything we do. But also on our ability to recommend the very best the city has to offer. So you can just relax and let us whisk you away to Edinburgh’s finest bars, restaurants and attractions (of which there are plenty). For newcomers, Edinburgh is divided neatly in two. One on side the Georgian New Town, on the other the Medieval Old Town. Unlike some new/old town divides, Edinburgh doesn’t discriminate. They’re both listed as UNESCO world heritage sites for their striking beauty and examples of heritage architecture. At the head of this hilly city is Edinburgh castle, a shining testament to the incredible history of the area. And a bold reminder of where the city’s original settlement first sprung up from. While at the foot of that hill sits the neighbouring port of Leith. Be warned – first time visitors have been known to stop in the street and gawk unashamedly at the unreal beauty of Edinburgh. Be prepared to join them. But it’s not all sightseeing and long walks here. Edinburgh also boasts an alluring and sophisticated culture and nightlife. Playing home to the world’s largest Arts Festival every year as well as Michelin starred restaurants and cocktail parlours aplenty. All you need now is an Edinburgh taxi. Book with Addison Lee and we’ll have you up and running in no time.
