Whats the best breakfast place near the Royal mile?

by Ruai

Or better yet on it?

Re: Whats the best breakfast place near the Royal mile?

by EdinburghRoc

This is perhaps a little late: BHS Store on Princes Street. Across from the Scott Monument.
Great British Breakfast 10 items of YOUR choice such as 2 eggs, two sausages, beans would make five + bacon, 2 black pudding, tomato and mushrooms would make 10 + one slice of toast comes to £2.69. €3.97.

Its on Rose Street or go right through the BHS from Princes St to the back.
Oh and here's a tip offten if you buy something they give you a chit to use at the restaurant which will give you 20% off.
The drinks are dearer with a mug of chocolate or coffee it could come to €6.63 £4.49p.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

See the Edinburgh Castle. Of...

by O.KATALINA

See the Edinburgh Castle. Of all the castles I have seen so far in the UK, I think I like the Edinburgh Castle most because on top of its granite rock foundation, it looks magnificent and well-proportionate.

Par-take of Local Brew

by roamer61

One of the pasttimes is to partake of the local Scottish Brew, beer or ale, in one of the many local pubs. Its a fine way to sample Scottish hospitality and music. Scotland is famous for its Whiskey too. So if your a hard-core drinker (which I am not), you can try some of the Scoth the region is known for.

In addition to the many pubs, there are various shops to visit if you dont wish to sate your thirst.

Rosslyn Chapel - it's amazing....

by Myfanwe

Rosslyn Chapel lies about 7 miles South of the centre of Edinburgh. The Chapel was founded in 1446 by Sir William St Clair, the last St Clair Prince of Orkney. The building as we see it now is only part of the original plan. Sir William died in 1484 and was buried in the unfinished chapel, the larger building he had planned was never completed. Rosslyn chapel itself is now famous worldwide for the part it played in the book & film The Da Vinci Code,by Dan Brown. Since the book was written the number of visitors to the chapel per year has risen from 3,000 to 30,000!!

From the outside the chapel doesn't look very pretty at all, it is surrounded by scaffolding which allows you to climb the steps and have a birds eye view of the carvings on the roof of the chapel and it provides you with spectacular views over the Glen. As soon as you step inside the chapel it is a whole new different world, the carvings and intricacies covering every inch of wall & ceiling are awesome, I was totally unprepared for the grandeur of the architecture. A free guided tour is provided in the entry fee, the guide gave us a very interesting talk about the history of the chapel and carvings.

The entry fee is £7 for adults and £6 for concessions.
Opening hours are: 930-5pm Mon to Sat & 12-4.45 on a Sunday (best check the website before you go though).

To get to Rosslyn by bus you will need to catch the number 15a which runs hourly from the City centre (I caught it from Princes Street).

One night I had the greatest...

by chanzey

One night I had the greatest fun when I joined the Auld Reekie Tour, a ghost tour of the Old Town in the dark of night, which ended with a visit to a magician's or witch's cavern. So I want to recommend one of these tours (there are several options and also several organizations). Info available from the Tourist Info Centre at Waverly mall. This might especially be a good idea if you only have limited time to spend in Edinburgh and you want to do some more sightseeing at nighttime. It could get pretty spooky though...

But it's very interesting to learn about all the ghosts and stories of old Edinburgh, the city as it was in the Medieval period and such. Almost as good as a visit to Mary King's Close, but for this you have to book way beforehand...

Nightlife Hotspot

by steventilly about Rose Street

One of Edinburghs most famous streets, Rose Street runs parallel to and one street back from Princes street. It runs the whole length, from Charlotte Square to St Andrews Square and is lined with pubs and eateries, as well as some shops. It's a good place, by day or by night. Seemed to be "casual" but there may be trainers/jeans restrictions.
Many of the places along here are quite "cosy" and have candle lit tables and quite atmospheric interiors. We were quite surprised at how they differed from a lot of the pubs at "home".
