A Weekend In Edinburgh – Things To See

If you rent serviced apartments in Edinburgh for a short break or a weekend conference, you may think there isn’t enough time to see the sights. However, by renting luxury serviced apartments in Edinburgh by the New Town, you not only get the benefits of staying in a beautifully converted 18th Century town house – you are also right in the centre of the Heritage district, meaning many of Edinburgh’s treasures are just a short walk away.

Most people head for the Castle, which needs a weekend to itself. The Amber Restaurant is just one of many top eateries to be found in the city – especially in the Royal Mile district. Linking Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood House, this is Edinburgh’s most famous shopping and dining area: 1 mile of streets and alleyways (known as Closes) with innumerable tartan shops, whisky stores, bars and restaurants. Location is everything when considering accommodation in Edinburgh.

Here you will find museums, churches and hidden, underground alleyways. There is so much to see on the Royal Mile that it can be a daunting prospect knowing what to see first – so book a guided tour. There are plenty to choose from, including Haunted Edinburgh and Witchery tours. Alternatively, just buy a guide book and set a theme: you could, for example, visit the museums and visitor centres. There are museums devoted to whisky distilling, tartan weaving, childhood and even writing. If something has a purpose, Edinburgh makes a museum of it!

One visit to Edinburgh is never nearly enough. Luckily, we at Serviced City Pads have luxury serviced apartments in Edinburgh available all year through. Visit our site to see our accommodation in Edinburgh.
