There are many options on flights from London to Edinburgh. Edinburgh Airport is about 6 miles west of the city centre, with various cheap and easy transport connections by train, bus and taxi into the city. Journey time is about 75-90 minutes, and while the overall journey time works out a little longer than the train (because of getting to and from the airports, and check-in times), the overall cost is much cheaper. Flying from London to Edinburgh makes a day trip possible, and is the best option even if planning a longer visit.
There are as many as 28 daily cheap easyJet flights to Edinburgh, from London Gatwick Airport, London Stansted Airport, London Southend Airport and from London Luton Airport. You should check departures from all those airports, to find the one most convenient for you, or to find the cheapest flight price.
