Safe?

by rkid21

Hi there,

I will be spending a day in Edinburgh, and I plan to explore the city from below the Royal Mile to past Princess Street ON FOOT. Touring alone this day and being a gal (a tough gal, but a gal nonetheless. Ha. Ha.),I just want to be sure I will be safe, so are there any specific streets or areas that I should avoid? How is the area near the Queen Street Gardens?

Thanks a bunch!

I agree. I would be more worried in Philly, but really, - I would not worry in Philly either. Just do what you do in Philly as far as being aware, and you will be fine. Enjoy Edinburgh, it is a great city.....d:o)

Re: Safe?

by Redang

From my point of view, 100% safe; just use your common sense as I do anywhere in the world (my hometown included)

Re: Safe?

by leics

Of course you will be safe. Just use normal city common sense to avoid pickpocketing and opportunistic theft.

I traveled all over this area alone and had a great, safe time. Never saw anything that even registered on my "watch out meter". It is a great place for wandering around.

Re: Safe?

no worries at all. Edinburgh is a great college town with a lot of young people running around everywhere. me and my friends walked all over that town at all hours of the day and night. you will have so much fun. but there is a lot to do so make sure you do some research and figure out what you want to do. if you just wander around you are sure to miss a lot. feel free to ask any questions . and have fun

Re: Safe?

Thanks, everyone! I've visited Edinburgh before (6 years ago) but mainly stayed on the Royal Mile, and this time I will be exploring the less touristy parts of the city, so thanks for the reassurance.

P.S. Yes, Philly can be quite rough in parts...

Re: Safe?

Sorry, what do you mean with "watch out meter"?

Re: Safe?

by kathymof

"Watch out meter" means that I am seeing something that is making me uncomfortable as far as safety. It is like a little bell going off saying "Be careful - this may not be the safest place around".

OK, thanks!

OK, thanks!

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Waverley Station

by kevarms

Some observations about Waverley Station:
- be sure to give plenty of time for your journey. The ticket counter can be extremely crowded. There are a few ticket machines but most only take credit cards and the one we found that took cash was very fussy about what notes it liked.
- platforms seem to be numbered in random order. Again, give plenty of time.
- there is a left luggage room in the station, cost is £5.50 per 24 hours. Note it's not open 24hrs but does stay open until quite late.

Royal Mile - The Heart of Edinburgh - How it Looks

by scotlandscotour

This is a typical view of the Royal Mile, the street that runs between the Castle and the royal palace of Holyrood.
It is a gently decending cobbled street, one mile long, and bussling with tours, shops and more things to grab your money for "all things Scottish".
Tip: Best appreciated AFTER you have seen the real Scotland. You really need to have seen something of Scotland to be able to filter out the rubbish and see the beauty. Destinguish history from fiction and truth from lie.
Hold on to you wallet! This is not a place to impulse buy, certainly not if you are new in town. During the Festival (ie August) and much of the summer afternoons it is crowded, but early in the day (ie before midday!) you can linger and appreciate the architecture. Why are tourists so slow to rise? Are they suffering? Remember .... "The early bird catches the worm". Enjoy :-)

Auld Reekie

by Pixiekatten

Just one short thing about this great city's name. The city is affectionately nicknamed Auld Reekie, Scottish for Old Smoky. This is because when the only fuels available were coal and wood, all the chimneys would spew lots of smoke into the air. Auld Reekie also referred to the less than sanitary living conditions that would lead to a strong odour covering the city. "Reek" means "smell" in modern Edinburgh.

Going to Edinburgh you will see all the ash still remains on most houses. The name Auld Reekie seems very appropriate indeed.

Walk to the Duddington village

by jcarolj

Small and very posh village behind Arthur seat..and Pollock Hall of Residence or whatever it is called..Old Church build with masons..and fantastic mansions, small loch..I am sure you have noticed that picture of Skater in the National Gallary..so he was skating on the ice of this loch..Little quiete corner in the city

Greyfriars Kirkyard

by steventilly

The kirkyard (churchyard) of Greyfriars houses a fine collection of memorials and graves. Some very prominent scots are buried here, and a panel in the churchyard names them and show the location of their graves. 99% of visitors to the churchyard though are onlye here to see one "resident" - Greyfriars Bobby...
