Visit Murrayfield Stadium in Scotland with DFDS
Opened in 1925, Murrayfield Stadium is the largest in Scotland and is one of the host venues of the Six Nations, as well as many other major rugby and sporting events.
As the home of Scottish Rugby Union, Murrayfield is also fantastic to visit on non-match days when you can go on guided tours and view historic rugby memorabilia and experience the atmosphere of the Team Tunnel on match day.
Edinburgh can be reached from our ferry port in Newcastle in around 2 hours and 30 minutes by car, travelling along the North Sea coast on the A1. You can enjoy an overnight crossing on our Amsterdam to Newcastle ferry, so you’re refreshed and ready to travel to Edinburgh for the Six Nations match.
What to see in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is a beautiful and exciting city, filled with history and culture. The most famous landmark is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels. From the Castle, the Royal Mile runs through Edinburgh’s Old Town with plenty of great shops, pubs and places to eat along the way.
For a fantastic view of the city, head to Holyrood Park and climb Arthur’s Seat, the remains of the volcano crater in which Edinburgh is built. You can also see incredible collections of art and artefacts in the National Museum of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery.
How to get to Murrayfield
Murrayfield Stadium is easy to get to on public transport from the city centre, reachable in just 15 minutes by tram from Princes Street.
If you’re driving to the stadium on a match day, you can book parking at the stadium itself, though this is limited. The other option is the Ingliston Park and Ride, which provides buses into town or a tram link direct to the stadium.
