The Parks And Gardens Of Edinburgh

If you book luxury serviced apartments in Edinburgh, you soon discover that the best form of transport is a pair of stout shoes. A guided tour on an open top bus is a great way to see the city if you’ve only rented serviced apartments in Edinburgh for a few days, but if you’ve longer – use your feet.

Take a stroll along the Royal Mile to Edinburgh Castle, and you’ll see the best view of Edinburgh there is. The green area in the foreground is Princes Street Gardens. Today a charming, peaceful city park with statues, bandstands and a floral clock, it was, until the 1750s, the site of Nor’ Loch. Here, witches were half-drowned before being burned at the stake. The plaque at Witches Well, on Castle Hill, tells you that more innocent women were burned here than anywhere else in the UK.

Leaving this grisly scene behind, a short bus ride – or a longish walk – takes you to Holyrood House, at the opposite end of the Royal Mile. This is the seat of Scottish Parliament, and stands in one of the finest city parks in the world.
Rent luxury serviced apartments in Edinburgh by the Royal Mile, and within minutes you are seemingly miles from anywhere. Holyrood Park houses an extinct volcano and 3 lochs – yet it is almost entirely surrounded by the city!

Take a walk up to Arthur’s Seat, actually the remains of the volcano upon which Edinburgh stands and you can make out the remains of ancient lava flows. There are a variety of hotels in Edinburgh for you to enjoy your stay.

Whether for business or pleasure, renting our luxury serviced apartments in Edinburgh at Serviced City Pads will leave you with the memories of a lifetime.
