Princes Street Gardens

Princes Street Gardens

Princes Street Gardens is located in the heart of Edinburgh city centre and runs down the south side of Princes Street. It was originally a loch called the Nor Loch which was a dumping ground for all the sewage from the Old Town. This was drained and the gardens were created in 1820. They are divided into the East and West Gardens separated by the Mound. In the West Gardens is the Ross Fountain, the Floral Clock and the Ross Band Stand where many summer concerts are held and also holds the Hogmanay celebrations. The East Gardens has the Scott Monument at the entrance to the Gardens and also the National Gallery of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Academy are located there. In the summer it is a popular place to sit and enjoy the view of Edinburgh Castle. In winter it is transformed to a winter wonderland with an ice rink. There is also a German Christmas Market and the Edinburgh Wheel. The West gardens become Santa’s Reindeer Garden with trees festooned with lights and horse and carriage rides.

Military Tattoo

Military Tattoo

The Edinburgh Military Tattoo is a pageant held annually over three weeks in August. The display takes place on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle and is part of the wider Edinburgh festival which runs at the same time. First established in 1950, the show has grown to become a major event: tickets are a sell-out and it is televised internationally. The show is a military presentation in which massed piped bands and precision marching are a major part, but also includes other displays such as dancers, gymnasts, singers and motorbikes. Each year one of the arms of the forces takes the lead role. A consistent feature since it began is the lone piper high on the castle battlements picked out by a spotlight while all else is in darkness. In recent years the piper has played on the top of the Scottish National War Memorial. The participants are not always Scottish or even from the UK. The first overseas regiment took part in 1952 and since then more than 30 countries have been represented. There is a nightly performance Monday to Friday and two on Saturday. It is the Tattoo’s boast that no show has ever been cancelled because of the weather.



This venue is located in the centre of Edinburgh opposite the Usher Hall and close to the main tourist attractions. The Atrium restaurant was opened in 1993 and is owned by Andrew and Lisa Radford. Local produce is used to prepare the menu which includes meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. The wine menu has been voted 'The Best in Scotland' by the AA guide on two different occasions. Corporate events and private functions for up to 200 people can be organised including your choice of entertainment. The Atrium is also available for weddings, from the ceremony right through to the evening reception. The normal opening hours are: Monday - Friday 12pm - 2pm and 6pm - 10pm. Saturday 6pm - 10pm
