THE TOURIST TRAIL
Edinburgh is a major city for tourism and it's also the world's festival capital.
Popular festivals include the Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Edinburgh Festival Fringe, not forgetting the notorious Hogmanay celebration. Our Edinburgh Visitor Guide will help you plan a great trip to Scotland's capital, whether you're with a group of friends, travelling solo or on a family break.
We're fortunate enough to be located right next to Her Majesty's Yacht Britannia (Royal Yacht Britannia); voted Scotland's best attraction by VisitScotland. Explore the Bridge, The Apartments, Crew's Quarters and the Engine Room. Finish off with a cuppa in the Royal Deck Tea Room and a visit to the gift shop for a souvenir.
If you're looking for a fun day out, take a trip to Edinburgh Zoo where you'll see the UK's only giant pandas. Immerse yourself in the history of Scotland's capital with a trip to Edinburgh Castle. For a true taste of Scotland, why not head to The Royal Mile for a Scotch Whisky experience?
SHOP 'TIL YOU DROP
Ocean Terminal shopping centre is 2 minutes away from the hotel and has a range of shops and eateries inside, as well as a VUE Cinema. Stores include Debenhams, Waterstones, French Connection and GAP. If you're feeling peckish, grab a bite to eat in one of the many restaurants including Zizzi's, Frankie & Benny's, Pizza Express and Wagamama's.
You'll find an array of luxury brands, high street stores and boutiques across the city. Popular spots for a bit of retail therapy include Princes Street, George Street and Multrees Walk.
If you're looking for a memento of your trip to Scotland's capital city or if you just fancy treating yourself, you'll be spoilt for choice.
