Very handy parking spots around the Meadows if , like we were , you are attending a show at The Kings Theatre and arriving from out of town in evening with not a lot of time to park centrally and travel out.
Huge park in the old town, equally an impressive sport complex, with tennis courts (grass and hard) and, obviously, cricket field. The Club itself is soooo british! And playing tennis on grass, surounded by the old fashion buildings...really a very impressive experience!
Come rain or shine, the meadows is a hustling and bustling place on the paths but in between the grassy areas are a place of serenity and a chance to chill out. The beautiful autumn blossom and the smell of summer bbqs are some of...More

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighbourhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
