Practical information

Venue

The Royal College of Physicians (conference venue) is situated in the very heart of Edinburgh. https://www.rcpe.ac.uk/college/venue-hire

How to get there

The railway station (Edinburgh Waverley) is right in the centre of town, a short walk from the conference venue.  A taxi from Edinburgh Airport to the city centre will take around 30 minutes depending on the time of day, longer in rush hour.  There is also a tram that runs from the airport to the city centre, and we have an excellent bus service https://www.lothianbuses.com/ who have a downloadable app https://tfeapp.com/.

Edinburgh in December

In December, Edinburgh has Christmas lights,  a German market, fairground and other events in the city centre, including a skating rink, and a multitude of “shopping experiences”.  Several museums and art galleries are within walking distance of the venue. The weather can be chilly then, around 2-7 C on average (and may well be wet) so layers of appropriate clothing are recommended.  We also have theatres, cinemas and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.
