Catch a match at Murrayfield

If you're looking for things to do in Edinburgh, look no further.

Whether you're visiting for business or leisure, Edinburgh - and specifically its West End - provide plenty to see, do, eat, and experience. Apex Haymarket Hotel is located in the city's Haymarket area, positioned just west of Edinburgh's famous Old Town and New Town. Haymarket is a critical piece of the city's fabric: a busy area filled with corporate offices, great local restaurants, and fewer crowds of tourists than its adjacent local areas.

Haymarket is notable for its accessibility via public transport. The Haymarket Train Station - among Edinburgh's most prominent - offers seamless connections to the UK's largest cities, including London, Manchester, and Glasgow. The city tram cuts through Haymarket on its way to Princes Street, stopping just a few minutes away from Apex Haymarket Hotel. Edinburgh Airport is approximately 25 minutes away via tram, bus, or car. 

Once you're here, Haymarket is a friendly area filled with the attractions for which Edinburgh is known. Home to Scotland's national rugby team, BT Murrayfield Stadium is located only a short walk from the hotel. The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is known for its sculpture garden, rotating exhibitions, and pre-eminent collection of Scottish and European works. Due to Edinburgh's compact, walkable layout, Old Town attractions like Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, and the National Museum of Scotland are no more than a 15-minute stroll away.

Haymarket sits within walking distance of the city's most important corporate offices and the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, making Apex Haymarket Hotel a stellar choice for seamless business stays.
