    Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh

    Brilliant Kids Science Museum. As an adult I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and could easily got back again!

    The Queen's beautiful Scottish Palace is open to the public and we really enjoyed going around it. We had two toddlers in tow too and they enjoyed all the space being able to run around in it! If your into history you'll enjoy this Palace!

    Climb this monument for the best views of the city. Found opposite department store, Jenners. Author Bill Byson once described this as a gothic rocket ship!

    Brilliant tour of the underground city where people used to live in utter misery. View the small compartments where people once lived and walk the cold dark alleyways, it's fun as well as a bit scary. A definite for thrill seekers! Tours leave from the Royal Mile.

    The Edinburgh Museum has had a major refurbishment in recent years and is truly amazing. Free admission although donations are highly recommended. Great cafe and a wonderful shop too. Highly recommend.

    All Bar One, Edinburgh

    Great wine bar and gastro pub food. Great for a pit stop while shopping along George Street.

    Traditional French food in the centre of town. Big thumbs up and reasonably priced.

    Great coffee in a tiny little place decorated with coffee sacks. Sit and actually watch your coffee being made. Great vibe!

    This Seedish Bakery is to die for delicious. Great atmosphere and the main cafe is right by The Meadows, a large green space in the old town area. Great coffee. They are also located in Stockbridge at 3 Deanhaugh Street. Highly recommend for coffee or lunch.

    Book Well in Advance for August

    If visiting Edinburgh in August it is a must to book well in advance. The population of Edinburgh more than doubles during August.
    Said so often by Edinburgh residents it has taken on a mythic quality, this fun fact is actually true as the city swells in size to accommodate performers, thinkers, artists, and their very welcome audiences.

    Only in Scotland. The Deep Fried Mars Bar!

    Deep-fried Mars Bars exist and are actually very delicious! Just ask in any 'Chippie' (Chip Shop)!
