Haymarket trains to Central Station

Hi, We will be staying near Haymarket station in Edinburgh and need to get to Jury's Inn Hotel in Glasgow which is a 5 minute walk from the Central Station there. Do trains run between these 2 stations? We want to go on Wed. Aug. 29 around 11:00 a.m. Thanks.

Edinburgh trains run half hourly I think, from Waverley to Haymarket and the to Glasgow. Queen Street, not Central Station. It is around a 10 minute walk to the Jury's inn from Queen Street. If you have a lot of luggage you can get a taxi but it really is not very far. You can also get the free transfer bus if you want to Central station but you are just as well walking if you have to wait on the bus. From Central Station it is around a three - four minute walk to the Jury's

There are 4 trains an hour running to Glasgow Queen Street, taking about 45 minutes. There is one train an hour to Glasgow Central, taking nearly 90 minutes. I would take the train to Queen Street and walk.

There's also a faster service from Haymarket to Central - GNER's London to Glasgow service runs the route, plus an occasional Virgin XC.

Not all that frequent though - every couple of hours. 1139 is the nearest to your time.

GNER is the best way for you.These trains have come up from London and are usually less busy than the local services.

They take less than an hour,but do check the departure time from Haymarket.

At Central use the exit to Union St,turn right and Jury's is about 3 blocks down,past Macdonald's.

Beware of trains to Glasgow Central from Edinburgh! A lot of them take about 2 hours as they go through Motherwell and every other hole in the hedge on their way.

You'll be fine walking from Queen Street - no more than 10 minutes to Jury's from there or a very short taxi ride.

It's the Virgin/GNER trains that typically call at Motherwell, the

slow trains to Central don't. Basically if you here a train announced

destined for Central with over 5 stops in between don't get on it!

Sorry,but you are obviously not familiar with the GNER service.

These trains have come up from London,are much longer and more comfortable than the local trains and are usually quieter as most passengers get off at Edinburgh.

They run roughly every 2 hours and take less than an hour for the journey.

On further investigation it seems GNER are terminating at Edinburgh during August.

So please ignore my suggestion and just get the regular service to Glasgow Queen St.

Thanks for everyone's input. Looks like the trains run quite frequently and I shouldn't have a problem.
