Enjoy a stroll along George Street for a spot of shopping.

There are different options of bus tour so if you would like to visit Leith and the Stunning Botanical Gardens then we recommend visiting The Royal Yacht Britannia which was Her Majesty's Queen Elizabeth II former Royal yacht which was in service from 1954 to 1997. A visit to The Dundgeons or the Real Mary King’s Close which is buried deep beneath Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. The city’s deepest secret; a warren of hidden streets that has remained frozen in time since the 17th Century.
