The station has recently been redone and upgraded to a more modern facility. Coach operators are now migrating back to St. Andrew\'s station which has once again become the hub of bus travel in Edinburgh -- many coaches previously ran from Waterloo Place. St. Andrew\'s bus station is fairly small but clean. There is a newsagent and a place where you can buy bakery products and coffees to go. The central area of the bus station houses ticket offices where you can also pick up timetable leaflets and make inquiries. Each ticket office sells tickets for certain coach operators -- which is clearly displayed at every office -- and will rarely sell tickets or answer enquiries for other operators. The two clearly displayed departures and arrivals screens are also located in the central area of the station. Each service is indicated on the screen along with the departure bay and other information. Each coach bay has its own waiting seats which is handy. Lockers are also available in the station.

Edinburgh City Centre

The Old Town of Edinburgh is built on a ridge that rises gradually from the Palace of Holyrood to Edinburgh Castle. There are staircase lanes, called Wynds, that lead off this 'Royal Mile' that give the impression of the city being built on multiple levels and buildings that date from the 11th Century. The New Town is also a World Heritage Site with its mix of Georgian town houses and the earliest examples in Europe of tenement flats. The views to be had from the Castle, Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill are dramatic and inspiring.
