Description The Howard

Hotel The Howard
The Howard is an intimate and discreet luxury 5-star hotel which occupies three Georgian townhouses in a super-convenient location in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town. The Howard is classically elegant both outside and in, and has just 18 luxury rooms and suites, named after Edinburgh streets. In keeping with the character of the building, we have used rich fabrics, oil paintings and opulent furnishings to make the hotel deeply comfortable, a 5-star home-from-home. You will quickly feel as though you have lived here forever. A key feature of the service at our 5 star Edinburgh hotel is the butler - actually a team of butlers, who take care of everything from car parking to ironing to late-night room service to theatre bookings. You will find them very useful, whatever your reason for being in Edinburgh. The Howard has its own intimate restaurant, The Atholl. This was originally intended as a dining room just for guests, but proved so popular with local residents - especially for our famous afternoon tea - that it has grown into a destination restaurant in its own right. It only seats 14, however; so don't forget to book. Pre-dinner drinks and nightcaps are served in our drawing room - a lovely space with curving, barrel-shaped walls and deep knole sofas to sink into after a hard day's shopping or sightseeing in Edinburgh.

  • Stirling Castle

    Stirling Castle

    Stirling Castle is located in Stirling, on top of the Castle Crag. The western face of the rock drops 80m down, but the site is naturally well defended form three sides. Historically, the castle guarded a desirable crossing on the river Forth and effectively, the access to the Highlands from the south. The castle is connected with important events of Scottish history: battles of Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn, coronation of Mary Queen of Scots, Jacobite uprisings. It was a favourite residence of the Stuarts in 16th and 17th centuries. The castle is approached via fortifications of the Forework: the Gatehouse, the curtain wall, ditch and several towers. Majority of the important buildings inside the walls date from the 15th and 16th centuries. The most important ones are located around the Upper Square: the Palace, The Great Hall, built as venue for state occasions, the Chapel, and King's Old Building. Other attractions include the basement Great Kitchens, the Nether Bailey and the Tapestry Studio. There is a cafe, a bookshop, a gift shop and a whisky shop. Admission: Adult £9 (10 Euros), Child £4.50 (5 Euros). Opens 9.30, closes 6pm in summer (Apr-Sep)

  • Buchanan Street

    Buchanan Street

    Buchanan Street, with nearby Sauchiehall and Argyle Streets are sometimes nicknamed the “Golden Z”, as it is here that you will find most High Street names and it is here that Glasgow’s reputation as the UK’s second largest retail centre comes from. In Buchanan Street itself, visitors will find the Buchanan Galleries, the Prices Square Shopping Centre, the first House of Fraser and the only Apple Store in Scotland. The Royal Concert Hall is also in Buchanan Street, within the Buchanan Galleries building. After extensive refurbishment in 2000, the street is today paved in granite and entirely pedestrian. There are a number of transport links to the street, with Buchanan Bus Station at the top, the Queen Street train station as well as a metro station further down. Architecturally, the street is characterised by a mixture of Victorian architecture and modern design, with red sandstone the dominant building material. In 2008, Buchanan Street won the Academy of Urbanism 'Great Street Award'.
