In terms of location, guests are spoilt at The Leamington Road Residence. You’re less than a mile from Edinburgh’s medieval Old Town, and so can be in the midst of The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle with a 15-minute walk. Our glorious Georgian New Town, packed full of galleries, shopping and world renowned architecture, is just as easily reached on foot in the amount of time. Or why not jump on one of the frequent Lothian buses leaving from around the corner on Gilmore Place, taking you to Princes Street, The Mound, the New Town or Leith for The Shore and Royal Yacht Britannia.
Edinburgh’s famous sightseeing and attractions are easily accessible, but the local area is pretty fantastic, too. Just a five-minute stroll up Leamington Terrace and you’ll be in Bruntsfield, a charming area brimming with independent cafes, bistros and bars. On a sunny day you’ll find the whole of Edinburgh pouring on to Bruntsfield Links and The Meadows, so why not pick up a few treats from one of the local delis and join them if the weather is kind. Five minutes in the other direction, just over the canal, will see you in Fountainbridge. This up and coming area is famous for it’s rainy-day paradise Fountain Park, home to a cinema, bowling, gym and trampoline park and various family favourite restaurants.
As you’re staying right on the canal, why not make the most of your unique location and explore the residential side of Edinburgh from this different perspective? Whether its looking frosty and jewelled in the winter, or gloriously sunlit in summer, the Union Canal is vibrant and vivid in all seasons. Heading West will take you Harrison Park and, if you’re feeling really adventurous, eventually Glasgow! The journey is significantly shorter East, as you’re just a few minutes from the Canal basin – If you can resist the coffee barge and the restaurants you will soon find the locals’ shortcut to the city centre.
