“Princes Street Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

Choose a sunny day if you can and stroll the full length of the gardens taking in refreshements in some of the gardens cafe's etc. View the castle from underneath and soak up the atmosphere. Count the many different languages you hear along the walk.

“Somewhere to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

I loved that after walking all day we could sit down and just relax for an hour. It was amazing to sit in the grass in the gardens while so much was going on around you and you could still collect your thoughts.

“Ignore the tram works!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

Beautiful gardens - peaceful even though in centre of city. Edinburgh Castle makes a fantastic backdrop. Take time to walk through all. You can't even see the horrific tramworks from the lower parts of the gardens.
