Hello everyone! Today’s post is all about the gorgeous places that you can see, and all of the fun things that you can do if you ever have the pleasure of visiting Edinburgh.
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, or have read my first post about Edinburgh (which you can find here), you’ll know that I’m absolutely in love with the city, and I just can’t get enough of it. I fall in love with the city more and more, every single time that I visit, and I hope you will too!
So here’s a little guide on where you should go whilst you’re in Edinburgh, use this guide whether you’re a complete newbie to the city, or whether you’ve visited many times, but just want some more recommendations!
1 . EDINBURGH CASTLE
I absolutely love Edinburgh Castle, but be warned, if you’re visiting in the Summer, you’ll still be able to visit, but you won’t be able to look out onto the landscape from the entrance of the castle, as The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo takes over the court! Although this too, is something that you may want to go and see, I’ve personally never watched it before, but it sounds amazing!
2 . THE ROYAL MILE
If you’re visiting Edinburgh, your trip won’t be complete without a walk down the Royal Mile. When strolling along, you really do begin to get a real Scottish vibe, with the many tourist shops, numerous kilts in windows, and of course, Whisky shops! If you visit during Edinburgh Fringe, you almost cannot move, you have street acts and advertisers dominating the street, but do not worry, they don’t mind if you don’t take a leaflet from them, you’re not going to receive a bad vibe!
3 . HARVEY NICHOLS FOURTH FLOOR BAR
Although Harvey Nichols stocks some of the most dreamy designer brands and products, you can still experience the AMAZING view from the bar upstairs! Cocktails are reasonably priced, and match the price of many other cocktails bars from around the UK, but the view is priceless! The view is gorgeous on a bright, clear, sunny day, but is also truly fabulous in the winter, with the snowy rooftops from across the city. This is a MUST SEE view!
4 . MULTREES WALK
Who doesn’t love a bit of window shopping? After you’ve taken in the view from Harvey Nichols bar that will leave you speechless, why not head for a little window shopping through Multrees Walk. Multrees Walk is located to the side of Harvey Nichols, so you don’t have to go far, the street is lined with famous designer brands such as Mulberry, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, etc, but it’s also such a lovely street! I enjoyed my time just wandering around here, and it’s also nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets!
5 . PRINCES STREET
Yes, Princes Street is filled with shops, and now you’re probably realising that I am indeed, the stereotypical fashion blogger who loves shopping and continue to loves it wherever I am. HOWEVER, if you’re not into shopping, you can visit the Scott Monument, and take in the amazing views if you decide to climb it! The Monument has so much history, which really is amazing, and I love how you’re able to access all of the levels to really get a great sense of Edinburgh! If you’re also wanting a bit of a rest, take a break in Princes Street gardens, they’re truly beautiful and it’s such a relaxing place!
I hope that you also someday fall in love with Edinburgh just like me.
