Things to do for Urban Explorers in Edinburgh
Botanical Gardens, New Town
Enchanting magical gardens with manicured hedges and exotic flowers. Visit Inverleith House 18th classic gallery for free and stop of in the lovely cafe next door. Or, simply find a bench and admire the "Wonderland". A photographer’s paradise, which would be a hit with families, nature buffs, peace-seekers and artists alike.
Tail End Fish Bar, New Town
An an excellent fish supper can also be here at the responsible face of chip shops, you’re not limited to the usual cod-haddock-battered-sausage: monkfish, scallops, Arbroath Smokies and langoustine tails are some of the more unexpected seafood items on the menu.
The Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Old Town
Open to the public since 1832, Edinburgh’s oldest museum is dedicated to the history of surgical pathology. Once used as a teaching museum for medical students, the museum now covers two levels and houses an impressively large permanent collection of pathological anatomy. Some of the exhibits are not for the faint hearted and are a bit grisly but fascinating.
Arthurs Seat, Old Town
For a panoramic view of the city, a hike up Arthur’s Seat is a must. Rising from the grounds of Holyrood Palace, the unusual position of this long dormant volcano in the centre of the city makes it an odd, but much loved landmark. Arthurs Seat can be seen from almost everywhere in Edinburgh and no matter what the weather, you can always make out the vague outline of people at the top.
