Living in Edinburgh
A modern, dynamic city boasting two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Edinburgh has fast become one of the most desired places to live in the UK. Famous for its international festivals, Edinburgh attracts some of the world’s leading performers to the annual Edinburgh Festival which includes events such as the Edinburgh Fringe, the largest performing-arts festival in the world, the Edinburgh International Festival, the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and the Edinburgh International Book Festival. With an audience of over four million, the Edinburgh Festival is now the second most visited tourist attraction in the UK.
With more restaurants per head than anywhere else in the UK, Edinburgh hosts some of the UK’s finest restaurants and unique dining experiences. From Michelin starred restaurants such as The Kitchin and Martin Wishart on The Shore in Leith, to The Honours and The Witchery in New Town, there is something to suit everyone’s taste buds. For a more relaxed dining experience, head to Stockbridge to Rollo, The Scran & Scallie or The Raeburn, or to Old Town for some hidden gems like Ting Thai Caravan and Devil’s Advocate off the Royal Mile.
With plenty of markets, local stores and high street and designer department stores, the city has a lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere with a distinctly Scottish twist, offering an amazing shopping experience whether you seek cutting-edge fashion or unique Scottish designed pieces.
The choice and quality of schooling continues to excel throughout the city and is a huge factor in why people choose to live in Edinburgh. Some of the country’s top independent schools, notably Fettes College, Merchiston Castle School and St. George’s School for Girls, are within easy reach of the city’s most popular residential areas. The excellent transport links also add to the city’s appeal, which include a direct tram service from the city centre to Edinburgh Airport, an efficient bus service across all areas of the city and a fast and efficient train service to London and elsewhere in the UK.
Edinburgh has a diverse range of sports clubs and adventurous activities on offer, from golf and tennis to climbing and skiing. There are a number of great walks in Edinburgh and the Lothians, a wide range of golf courses and plenty of off-road mountain biking routes available in the surrounding countryside. Rugby is one of the most popular sports in Scotland; the highlight of the rugby calendar being when Edinburgh hosts international matches played at the impressive BT Murrayfield stadium.
