I’m going to do a little flashback Friday blog series – I got the idea from my friend Hayley who writes a blog called Hayley From Home. In my Flashback Fridays I’m going to be showing you some of the cities I’ve visited since I met my husband 13 years ago. There aren’t loads but I thought it might be a nice non beauty related post. Let me know if you have visited any of the cities I feature.
The first city is Edinburgh. This is a city me and my husband have visited on a few occasions My mum lives about 50 minutes North of Edinburgh so we enjoy visiting Edinburgh whenever we can. We normally stay over in the Mal Maison in Leith. Leith is about a 15 – 20 minute walk into the main city and It’s a really pretty hotel. The hotel itself is very close to The Royal Yacht Britannia.
Edinburgh is a beautifully historic city you can do so many cultural things and the shopping in Edinburgh is great too they have Harvey Nichols, Mulberry, Anthropology, Jo Malone, SpaceNK and Jenners. So there is plenty shopping to keep you busy.
You also can’t go to Edinburgh without walking up to visit its famous Castle, its stunning and has quite a view over the whole city. The old streets leading up to the castle are cobbled and lined with lots of shops, ghost tours, old churches and traditional pubs. It is so steeped in History.
You’re never short of entertainment in Edinburgh as the street entertainers are so good. They have street theatre, mimes and people telling tales of old Edinburgh. Oh and Edinburgh Dungeon are worth a visit, you learn all about Burke & Hare I jumped out of my skin on numerous occasions
My favourite places to visit in Edinburgh are the National Museum of Scotland, which is free. The Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Mary Kings Close and of course the truly amazing Edinburgh Castle.
Every time I visit Edinburgh I am a complete tourist I love visiting all the galleries and museums and just walking around all the old lanes and beautiful parks. It’s a very friendly city with plenty to keep you entertained day or night.
Let me know what you love to do in Edinburgh.
