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

It's true we went there on a Sunday afternoon, but it was hugely overcrowded. There was nothing special to be noticed about this park, a plain surface of grass with alleys.

Yep it’s green and meadowy. If you’re up for whacking golf balls at the pitch n putt, you’re in for a better time! Amusingly, the parked cars add an extra layer of risk vs reward...

Southside & Holyrood
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
