Best Wine And Dine Haunts In Edinburgh

Many people book serviced apartments in Edinburgh blissfully unaware they are entering one of the most haunted cities in Europe. Others deliberately seek out “chill-out” zones like St Giles Kirkyard and the hidden Closes of the Royal Mile. Curiously, many people enjoy being scared witless in company time, and accommodation in Edinburgh is often used as a base for corporate Ghost Hunts and other team-building activities.

The Edinburgh serviced apartments supplied by us at Serviced City Pads are furnished to a very high standard, with fully fitted kitchens. However, with such an abundance of top class dining venues to choose from, it’s not surprising people often choose to eat out. The city has some superbly atmospheric eateries, meaning if you’ve booked Edinburgh luxury serviced apartments for a themed event (a corporate ghost tour, for example) you can book accordingly.

The Witchery is a stunning 16th century restaurant in the castle grounds, serving traditional Scottish fare in mediaeval surroundings – the perfect place to unwind before heading in search of the Phantom Piper of the Ramparts.

Alternatively, head for Fleshmarket Close, just off the Royal Mile: Mary King’s close and other spooky attractions are nearby. The name refers to its slaughterhouse, rather than the 18th century “nightlife” which once abounded here.

For witchery of a more literary kind, why not drop in to The Elephant House, on George lV Bridge? This café was where J K Rowling penned many of her early words. Choose accommodation in Edinburgh, and you can visit haunts of both the dead and the living.
