Things to do in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a place with something for everybody and The Dunstane is proud to be a luxury accommodation option for visitors to the city. The range of available Edinburgh activities is so vast that you really do need to be choosy, but we’re sure once you’ve visited once you’ll be back again to enjoy a completely different experience. Below we look at some of the best things to do in Edinburgh for single travellers, romantic couples and families.

Edinburgh is a treasure trove of fascinating architecture and stunning sights. The New Town is adjacent to Princes Street and is a planned Georgian development, whilst the Old Town starts at the Royal Mile and gives an insight to a more historic side of Scotland’s Capital. Both sides of the city offer plenty of things to do, and you can relax into boutique shopping, catch a show at one of the many theatres or simply watch the world go by in the stunning surroundings of Princes Street Gardens.

Of all the places to visit in Edinburgh the Castle should be top of your list. You could also stop by the modern Scottish Parliament buildings. Alternatively, if you’re looking for things to do for kids in Edinburgh you simply can’t afford to miss the fun and educational Dynamic Earth.

Edinburgh has a rich literary history and for arts fans there are hundreds of attractions. The National Museums of Scotland has six separate galleries and museums across the city with hundreds of interesting exhibitions.

If it’s shopping you have in mind then Princes Street offers all your high street favourites, whilst designer shops can be found near St Andrew’s Square and George Street. For independent and quirky boutiques, The Royal Mile is the place to go with plenty of choice for everyone.

Visiting Edinburgh is always an interesting experience; there is simply so much going on all year round. If you need any further advice or guidance on where to find attractions you can simply ask at The Dunstane during your stay.
