Places to eat in Edinburgh
One of the most important parts of exploring a new place is trying out the local cuisine. Edinburgh has hundreds of restaurants, cafes, bars and street food places to eat with many international cuisines represented so how do you know where to start? For an upmarket dining experience, visit the stunning Ivy on the Square for modern British food with a touch of theatre. Azile is perfect for a special occasion offering locally inspired seasonal tasting menus in a refined dining room. Dishoom is widely known as one of the best Indian restaurants in the whole of Scotland and lovers of flavour will love it here. You’ll find Italian, Thai, Greek, Chinese, and more alongside traditional Scottish dishes like haggis neeps and tatties spread across new and old town Edinburgh.
Things to do in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is a city you’ll never get bored in. You can shop and eat anywhere but to really get to know the city you have to look into its past. Head to the National Museum of Scotland, the largest free museum in Scotland and a place you could easily lose half a day. You can get to know everything from technology & textiles to animals & local history. Walking tours are popular in Edinburgh, taking you around the narrow cobbled streets and explaining the history of areas you may have just wandered through. Lovers of architecture need only look above street level to enjoy the most magnificent buildings. You can spend hours exploring places like Camera Obscura, St. Giles Cathedral, and the Royal Botanic Gardens. The possibilities are endless!
Family Fun in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is a very family-friendly city. Aside from playgrounds and soft play areas, there are many more obscure things to do in Edinburgh with kids. You can visit a castle to tell stories, climb an extinct volcano, take a Harry Potter tour, learn about medieval history, and pay a visit to a spooky dungeon – no children would get bored here! The National Museum of Scotland is full of hands-on exhibits for both adults and children. Camera Obscura is a fascinating world of illusions that will leave them scratching their heads for hours after you leave. Visit the animals in Edinburgh Zoo or Gorgie City Farm and learn more about their breeding and care. Or after a long day, simply enjoy a family takeaway and an early night in PREMIER SUITES Edinburgh – the perfect end to a great day.
Shopping in Edinburgh
The highlight of many trips to Edinburgh is the retail therapy. There are several shopping areas to visit catering to all sorts of styles and budgets. The main shopping street is Princes Street located in New Town, which has many high-end names and brands like Jenners and high street favourites like Primark and River Island. Edinburgh’s Grassmarket and Victoria Street are the perfect places to spend the day discovering independent shops and fashion. There are dozens of souvenir shops to pick up something cheesy to bring home from your trip to Scotland. We also have 6 indoor malls around the city and 5 retail parks on the outskirts.
