Here’s a suggestion: From Waverley Station, head to Halfway House, which is just four minutes away. Once you’ve had a drink there, walk five minutes to The Devils Advocate, and then the Bow Bar. Next, the Banshee Labyrinth is almost next door- and just three minutes away. The Tron is around the corner, and you’ll then head to Secret Arcade, the Royal Mile Tavern, and back to Edinburgh Waverly.
