Things to do in Edinburgh

There's so much to do in the friendly capital of the north. We've put together a list of our favourite things we like to do in Edinburgh from eating and drinking to vintage shopping

Godiva, Old Town

Godiva in the Grassmarket has some more serious price tags, but sells a great selection of quality vintage clothing, mixed in with independent, often local, designers and a made-to-measure service to boot.

The National Portrait Gallery, New Town

The National Portrait Gallery opened in December 2011 after a much awaited renovation. It houses carefully curated portraits spanning the centuries. If this doesn’t do it for you, the impressive façade of the building alone is worth a visit.

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.

Underthestairs , Old Town

If you ask Edinburgh dwellers what their favorite bar is, many of them will answer “Under the Stairs”. Located, as its name suggests, under the stairs of a lovely Old Town building near the Grassmarket, this bar has a warm, sophisticated yet laid-back atmosphere. Decorated to look like a living room, every piece of furniture is an antique, and they expose local artists’ work, as well as a beautiful fish tank.

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.
