Group Activities in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland and is a city of two halves, which offers great a variety for a group celebration weekend. The old historical side of Edinburgh has the medieval castle and the cobbled alleys whilst the other side offers an elegant but classic Georgian town.

When you arrive here expect to be blown away by world-class art galleries and museums around every corner, including an amazing shopping centre which is perfect for the individuals who love a bit of retail therapy.

Edinburgh isn’t just about rich history and amazing architecture as when the sun sets and the stars come out it’s all about the nightlife. Follow the cobbled streets and find yourself discovering everything you could possibly want on a group weekend when it comes to restaurants, bars and shops.

Everybody knows that Edinburgh isn’t exactly a small city which makes travelling tips more important than ever. However, most of the major sightseeing venues and hotels seem to be within walking distance of the two main train stations within the city, Waverly and Haymarket.

If you are fancying a trip the well known Edinburgh Castle or a shopping spree on Princess Street with your group but don’t fancy the pain of having to trek around, then there are plenty black cabs for you to hail whilst you are in the streets.

Getting to Edinburgh itself it not a difficult task at all as the city is easily reachable by train, road or air. So, no matter your mode of transport, Edinburgh is a fabulous place to visit for any group occasion.
