By Bus
Leave the Bus Station by the St. Andrew Square exit, one floor above the bus arrivals level. Outside, turn left and walk to the first street on your left, which is West Register Street. You will see a map on the wall pointing to us. Follow this road around, and we are in the doorway located between the hairdressers and Guildford Arms. We are on the top floor.

By Train
The train will stop at Waverley station. Follow the signs from there to Princes St. When you reach the main road, go to your right, cross the road, and then go left and immediately right, up West Register Street. Look for the signs.

By Plane
The plane will stop at Edinburgh Airport. The good news is that we are nowhere near that! When you get there, take the airport bus, which will stop on Waverley Bridge(last stop). Walk up to Princes St, turn right, go to the next intersection, cross the road and then go left and immediately right, up West Register Street. Look for the signs.

More Landmarks
Landmarks help find places in a new city, so here are some to help you. ::updated 2013:: Unfortunately there are some building works in the building in front of us, so it isn’t much of a landmark anymore, however there are signs with our logo on. The building we are behind is opposite the Balmoral Hotel, which everyone in Edinburgh knows, so just ask someone, or look up, as it has a big clock tower. Also opposite the building site is the horse statue. Our road is in between the building site and the statue. Our doorway is between the Guildford Arms and the Hairdresser. Make sure you go to the very top floor, where our reception is.
