When visiting Edinburgh their is lots to see,eat and do within this incredibly historic city. One of my favourite places to visit is the national museum of Scotland a beautiful building rich of history, fashion and technology. It is extremely family friendly with something to do for everyone’s taste and age. A lot of the museum is interactive allowing you touch and explore you way through different fragments of history and science. Not only is it interesting but the building and contents is extremely photogenic and makes for lovely photograph. The national museum of Scotland is FREE and is open 10-5 everyday.
Camera obscura is a great place to visit for a variety of reason’s. It is one of Edinburgh’s tallest buildings and once you reach the top you are given the most spectacular views of the city below offering you a panoramic view. You can also see Edinburgh castle from here and it is 5 minute walk away from Camera Obscura. The illusions vary and are really obscure and hilarious, we had a good two hours within camera obscura and i really enjoyed the variations of illusions from images to interactive mazes. We paid £15.50 each but the exhibition did not disappoint and again this one is for all ages and interests.
Princess Gardens and Edinburgh Castle
Princess gardens has always been a special place for me. Growing up my dad worked in Edinburgh and i used to spend many weekends in princess gardens during the summer. Of course more active and scenic during the summer princess Gardens is a beautiful walk through the city centre of Edinburgh and it provides you with scenic views of the castle and the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh city life.
A lovely Market inside one of Edinburgh’s old churches providing a place for local sellers to sell their wares, art work and handy crafts. The market is very spectacular with stunning stained glass windows and original brick work giving a regal look to the venue. I purchased a fabulous print from a stall called Diedododa which you can follow on instagram @diedododa. A unique place to visit with something a little different inside. Certainly a good place to visit if you enjoy supporting local businesses.
