This studio is ideal for 2. This is the second time we have stayed here for a week during the Festival. It is quiet, considering how near the road it is and convenient for the city, amenities and festival venues. The kitchen is small but...More

Glad to hear that you enjoyed your return visit to this apartment. We like its location up the narrow cul-de-sac of Forrest Hill, making the apartment 100m or so away from the busier Forrest Road. We look forward to welcoming you again at some point...More

The dog is buried close to his master and his faithfulness is commemorated in a statue opposite the entrance to the churchyard at the junction of George IV Bridge and Candlemaker Row.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the churchyard was a haunt of the ‘Resurrection Men’: body-snatchers who would dig up fresh corpses to sell for dissection to anatomists at the nearby medical school. You can find out mor...
