    Princes Street

    37 reviews

    Princes Street is the shopping district of Edinburgh, the best part of it is the large beautiful gardens and the view up to the Castle and across the Mound. Also be sure to climb to the top of the Scott Monument for beautiful views across the whole of the city, Arthurs Seat and the Firth of Forth.

    Massive Gothic monument to the author Sir Walter Scott. You are supposed to be able to walk up the stairs to the top, but I've never done it.

    National Gallery of Scotland

    It's the National Gallery of Ireland. It is okay, if you are into art but if you aren't you can probably give it a miss and see the nearby Natural History Museum instead!

    Take a tour this Victorian street underneath Edinburgh. It was blocked up after the bubonic plague, they simply built on top. It's a dark, scary place which can make the hair stand up on the back of your neck!

    Scottish National Portrait Gallery

    0.21 mi from The Balmoral Hotel
    4 reviews

    Really liked the National Portrait Gallery. They offer self-guided tours based on different themes. I took one based on people with disabilities and it added really interesting context to what might have been flat portraits of random people. I also like the area of Scottish scientists with the large portrait of three contemporary Scottish scientists/doctors being the highlight. They have ...

    Sir Walter Scott Monument

    0.24 mi from The Balmoral Hotel
    2 reviews

    The Scott Monument looks like the top of a church that might be buried under Princes Park. For £4, you can climb the almost 300 steps to look out from several of the levels. The staircase at the top is very narrow! Don't miss the small room at the first level. The stained glass windows are amazing.

    Something a bit different...Vegas adds a touch of glamour to clubbing. Music is swing, easy listening, latin & country. There are vegas show girls and Elvis or Sinatra might even pop up! Prizes for best dressed guests! Go on, make an effort! Always a fun night.

    Why Not is a run of the mill basement nightclub in trendy George St. There's couple of seating areas & huge dance floor. Cheap drink deals & cheesy pop music! £5 entry but be prepared to queue to get in! Busy at weekends but popular with students mid-week.

    A massive park in the middle of the city where families, students, young and old hang out. There's football games, frisbee games, people having bbq's, sunbathing. Obviously these are mostly summer activities, but even in winter, there's always people walking through or making snowmen

    Excellent bar tucked under Frederick Street. One room is surrounded by huge bookcases and a fireplace another has wine bottles glued to the ceiling. A big bar at the front as you walk in. Very popular with locals.
