Myself and my family spent one very hot Summer day lying on the grass soaking up the sun.
My daughter found an ice cream van, that ended up forcing us to buy so many ice creams through the day, we all felt sick !

Breathtaking, a lovely walk in the long bright evenings especially after a days shopping! The Princes street gardens are beautiful and everyone who visits Edinburgh should visit them.

A nice way to walk away from the shops and it has a lot of lovely wooden benches to sit down and ret.make sure you see the floral clock at the steps at the end.

Great place to sit on a bench with a Starbucks and take a break between shops at any time of the year, sit on the grass in the summer, hanging out with friends, and THE place to be for the end of the Edinburgh Festival and New Year fireworks!! I just wish they'd turn on the beautiful fountain!!

These gardens are very well kept and lovely to see. They lock the gates overnight but I don't know what time they do that.
