Edinburgh, a beautiful city in a beautiful country (Scotland)
I visited here last Thursday – Sunday with my boyfriend for a short weekend away. We were undecided on where to go, but when we heard the Christmas Markets were opening on the Saturday we were sold!
So we travelled here on the train, grabbing a Costa on route, of course, and I’m obsessed with the new Christmas Cups, so cute! I got my gingerbread latte of course! Favourite Christmas drink, we then boarded the train. The journey roughly took about 3 hours, with a stop at Preston in between. We then finally got to Edinburgh, and checked in at the hotel before heading out for the rest of the afternoon!
We started by having a drink to start the holiday, before going to get my boyfriends haircut at the barbers – which of course I did research on! We found a lovely one called Backstage Barbers – which did a lovely job of his hair!
We then had a walk around, walking through the royal mile – which was near our hotel, and down through to Grassmarket which we stopped and had a drink at The Last Drop – a pub which we visited last time!
Before heading home to Freshen up for our Tea that night! We hadn’t picked anywhere for Tea, so we just had a walk around the Royal Mile and found a burger place called Byron which had the most Devine burgers, I would definitely recommend this!
We then carried on for drinks, and found some nice bars to go into!
We started the day with a nice breakfast before going exploring some more!
This time we walked down Princes Street, round the gardens and looked up towards the castle!
before going to The Edinburgh Dungeons! We had booked this, and it was honestly so much fun! It was only £17.99, and it was such a good experience!
We then had some lunch at a pub,
before later going out for Tea which we had already booked aswell! We booked in at Cosmo which we went to the last time we came to Edinburgh!
It’s like an all you can eat, with different Cuisines – Italian, Indian, Chinese the works, and it’s always so nice, I just couldn’t enjoy much as my appetite was a bit off! We then ended the night with more drinks!
The first thing we did was have some breakfast! We went to an American Style Diner called City Cafe, I had some pancakes which were yummy, and my boyfriend had a Full Breakfast!
We walked up to the Castle, but didn’t go round it as we had already done this, and went on to do more exploring!
After this, we stopped for a nice Coffee in Saint Giles Cafe! Honestly the nicest coffee we had!
We then met up with my boyfriends friend before going off to explore the Christmas Markets!! Which were so good we did them twice in one day!
They were so pretty and full of lights, that I just had to get a selfie too – Well my boyfriend wouldn’t get one with me, so had to just do it for the gram!
We had a leisurely stroll around again before getting the train home!
It was such a lovely time, and I really enjoyed it! Can’t wait for the next trip again,
