Edinburgh Theological Seminary is superbly located, right in the heart of Edinburgh, a city frequently labelled one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Our building is surrounded by the quirky alleyways, quaint courtyards and cobbled streets that make up Edinburgh’s charming Old Town and we have Edinburgh Castle, St Giles’ Cathedral and the Writers’ Museum right on our doorstep.
The past is never far away. But the present is here, too, with the Scottish Parliament and Edinburgh Festival Centre just down the road and bustling Princes Street only a few minutes’ walk away.
The capital boasts the largest collection of historic buildings, museums, art galleries, entertainment venues and theatres of any city in Scotland.
With trams, railway and bus stations within easy walking distance from ETS, students have the choice of living within the city itself or commuting from elsewhere.
The seminary is less than a five-minute walk from Edinburgh’s Waverley railway station, which has direct links throughout the rest of Scotland and the UK.
By Bus or Tram
Our central location in Edinburgh means that we are very easy to travel to by bus and tram. We are just five minutes’ walk from Princes Street.
Parking near the seminary is very limited, so we would recommend that visitors travel by public transport whenever possible. There is on-street parking on Market Street, but this can be expensive.
