Located between the New Town and Old Town
The Edinburgh Waverley train station occupies a total surface of 101,000 square meters (25 acres) in the city centre and represents the second largest main line UK-based railway station, after London Waterloo, which ranks first. The site is also known as the 20th busiest rail hub in the UK and the second busiest in Scotland. Waverley hotels and other types of accommodation are located within close distance.
The depot is located in a steep valley situated between the New Town and the Old Town and lets the passengers admire the gorgeous surroundings. As railway travel became incredibly popular all across Great Britain, three companies decided to build rail stations in this valley in 1840s.
Three stations were the main component of a whole entitled Waverley, after the novels written by Sir Walter Scott. In 1868, North British Railway bought its competitors’ stations and decided to demolish all three, making room for the current Victorian station.
In present times, the place is still undergoing beneficial transformations. The roof glazing was already replaced with clear glass panels and chances are that the concourse of the Edinburgh Waverley train station will be refurbished in the near future. Stretching along one side of the station, Princess Street represents the main shopping street and gives you a new reason to book a great room in this area.
