Prepare your legs for a hilly walk up Edinburgh's winding streets! Trust us, the view with be oh so worth it! From Waverley Street Bridge (with Princes Street behind you), walk up Cockburn St to the Royal Mile. Once you reach the Royal Mile turn right and walk up this street. Keep going until you reach a roundabout (a building called 'The Hub' will be in front of you). At this roundabout take a left down Johnston Terrace. We are down here on the left.

Located Near

Located near everything: the Castle, Royal Mile and the Grassmarket. We're right in the middle of it all.
