Edinburgh Festival

2017 - One Man's Fringe

"It's better by rail". Said a friend of mine years ago, and the statement ought to be true for a North Londoner doing the trek to Edinburgh. Scheduled 4 hours 20 minutes from King"s Cross, into the heart of the City centre. 

Scheduled 4 hours 20 minutes. To which add 40 minutes of delay for a train fault. Not a major problem - time to note the compensation entitlement, sit back and relax.

London and Edinburgh - the Crystal Connection

The architecture of Scotland's capital is so Gordon Brown, oozing dour gravitas from the sandstone, and proclaiming its prudent psyche. The banking debacle has not damaged Edinburgh's image for the visitor, and the August overseas tourists throng Princes Street to marvel at apparently cross-dressing local males wearing heavy woollen skirts and bellowing out patriotic tunes on the bagpipes.
