Edinburgh

There are trains travelling to Edinburgh every hour from Berwick. This is a short 40 minute journey right into the centre of Scotland’s capital city. We cannot recommend highly enough that you visit (we do not recommend you taking a car as it is extremely difficult to find a free space and can be very costly eg. I recently parked for 6 hours and cost me £24!).

My own personal favourites are:

Edinburgh Castle, a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city from its position on the Castle Rock.

The Real Mary King’s Close, a warren of underground streets and spaces.

The Camera Obscura show is a fascinating and highly amusing way to see the city and learn about its history.

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE) was founded in the 17th century as a physic garden. Now it extends over four gardens boasting a rich living collection of plants, and is a world-renowned centre for plant science and education.

The Edinburgh Playhouse is the largest working theatre in the UK.

The Traverse Theatre is Scotland’s new writing theatre. From its conception in 1963, it has embraced a spirit of innovation and risk-taking that launched the careers of many of Scotland’s best-known writers.

Murrayfield Stadium, situated in the heart of Edinburgh, boasting excellent facilities for both the business and leisure tourist.

The National Portrait Gallery is also recommended.

For great food, our favourite restaurants and eateries are:

The Honours, Michelin-starred chef Martin Wishart’s restaurant, which opened with great acclaim in 2011.

Ondine restaurant, a proper seafood restaurant based in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic city centre.

Toms Kitchin, a modern British brasserie serving comfort food favourites in a relaxed and informal environment, from breakfast to dinner, seven days a week.

Timberyard, a funky and modern restaurant.

Mimi’s Bakehouse is a family run bakery and restaurant, offering belly busting breakfasts, afternoon teas and a tempting selection of cakes for all occasions.
