Where you’ll be

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

Newington has a large range of bars, some with live music, restaurants, and cafes serving a wide range of international and Scottish food.

The flat is 5 minutes walk from Holyrood Park with the iconic Salisbury Crags and Arthurs Seat, an extinct volcano. Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament building are also in the Park. Just as close by is The Meadows, a large green space adjacent to the Old Town, where you can watch people playing tennis, football, cricket or just hanging out.

Within walking distance are many of the Edinburgh Festival venues such as the Queens Hall, Summerhall, The Pleasance and the Festival Theatre, to name but a few.

Edinburgh is a fantastic city to walk around and from the flat you can get to the heart of the Old Town in 15 mins where Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile are located.

For the sporty visitor the Royal Commonwealth Pool is at the end of the road with pool, gym, sauna etc. You can also play tennis and pitch and putt at the Meadows. There are tennis rackets and balls in the flat.
