The National Museum of Scotland is situated in Chambers Street, in Edinburgh’s Old Town, a few minutes walk from the Royal Mile. Chambers Street links George IV Bridge and South Bridge.
Edinburgh is a very hilly city: the castle at the top and the train station at the bottom of the central hill. Beware – maps don’t always distinguish between junctions and high bridges over another road deep below you.
Transport: There are many trains a day from London (under 5 hours away)
