    The Grassmarket is full of great restaurants, offering pre-theatre deals and outdoor dining so you can sit and soak in the atmosphere. The University buildings are located around this area too. Edinburgh is a great city for exploring on foot- stroll up to Bruntsfield to the lovely unique shops, cafes and bars there, or sunbathe and picnic in the Meadows. Holyrood Palace is a 10 minute walk away, overlooked by Arthurs Seat- a hearty walk to the top will reward you with wonderful 360 degree views of the city rooftops and spires as well as the surrounding countryside.

    General

    Supermarket - a Tesco is a minute's walk away on North Bridge. There is also a Sainbury's at Quartermile, next to the meadows.

    Black Medicine is handy for coffees, a read at the news papers, good snacks and smoothies.

    Blackwells is a wonderful book shop and it has a cafe nero - a perfect place for a time out!

    Shopping - Boutiques in The Grassmarket, Bruntsfield, Morningside and Stockbridge. High Street shopping along Princes Street and George Street. The exclusive Multrees Walk and Harvey Nichols at St Andrew's Square.

    Gardens - Princes Street Gardens and The Meadows are both nearby. The Botanical Gardens are well worth a visit and are about a 30 minute walk through Edinburgh's centre, through the Georgian New Town. These are free, with a charge for the Glass Houses. Enjoy a meal at the fabulous new Gateway Restaurant.
