Edinburgh is a very well connected travel hub, there are regular fast trains from London, running along the scenic East Coast of the UK, with multiple public transport links also available at the airport for those arriving by air directly. 

New this year – The FIDI 39 Club powered sustainable travel initiative 

By avoiding an extra regional flight from London to Edinburgh or an airport taxi, all delegates will have the chance to take a greener transport mode, reducing their personal carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable conference. The FIDI 39 Club initiative prize draw will give one lucky winner a free registration for FIDI 2025. To enter, you simply need to take any form of public transport enroute to Edinburgh and share your ticket.
