Pleaces of interest in Edinburgh
You made a great choice to stay in our Edinburgh Hostel. We are absolutely slap bang in the centre of Edinburgh's action. You can see the Castle out of the hostel windows, and you are a short walk from the Dungeons, Dynamic Earth and lots more award winning attractions. Enjoy!
the edinburgh dungeon
Opened 13th April 2001 (spooky!), the Edinburgh Dungeons is a chamber of horrors reconstructing chapters in Scotland's book of the macabre, including Burke and Hare - the 19th Century body snatchers; and Mary Kings Close. The Dungeons is a scary treat indeed. Visit the Dungeon's official site.
This place is one of a kind. It tells the story of the planet, using very clever special effects and interactive technology. Visit the official site. Not to be missed!
Home of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, the Edinburgh Castle stands proud on an inactive volcano. Centuries old, this is the visitors' favourite. View the castle webcam! to see a live webcam image of this majestic building.
Where the Castle sits at the top end of the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace stands impressively at the other end. This Royal residence has seen many dramatic events in the history of Scotland dating back to 1498.
The children's favourite. See the penguins! See the lions and tigers! See the elephants and much, much more! Here's a preview of what you can see. A great day out for the family!
