In such a central location, trips to all the major tourist attractions, as well as shopping destinations, restaurants, bars and museums are made quick and easy. Edinburgh’s Royal Mile is just a short journey away, as is the iconic and spectacular Edinburgh Castle and the Holyrood Palace. There are events, exhibitions and tours all year round which keep the city on its toes and means that there’s bound to be something for everyone when you’re visiting. If you are around in August you won’t be able to miss the famous Festival, which is an amalgamation of art, film, music, literature, politics and theatre in the Fringe. Hundreds of scheduled events take place throughout the month; everything from one man re-enactments of well-known movies to improvised college student productions. Running alongside the festival there are countless street parties, gatherings in the park and after-show celebrations that are just as fun if you didn’t manage to bag tickets for the main event.
Somewhat of a rare treat for an urban city is an extinct volcano, suitable for brisk walks in the fresh air; which is exactly what Arthur’s Seat is in Edinburgh. The tallest of the city’s seven hills, it provides a nice change from the regular inner-city places of interest and at the top, the view makes the tiring climb more than worth it. For anyone interested in physical geography, geology or the city’s history in general, the science museum, Our Dynamic Earth, is a must-visit, especially for families with school-aged children. The museum has plenty of interactive activities and vast film projections, to entertain and inspire kids without them feeling as though they’re back in the classroom.
