The city of Edinburgh is often voted by its residents as' the best place to live in Britain'. Dramatic contours, long surviving buildings, breathtaking views, green hills, wide water and a manageable sized city centre have encouraged a truly cosmopolitan population that has produced a diverse cultural identity. The city is a thrilling place!
Culminating in August's festival it offers year-round, sophisticated entertainment in hundreds of small performance venues. Edinburgh castle, King Arthur's seat and a labyrinth of tunnels and dungeons provide similar excitement for history buffs whilst those simply looking for a place to shop in fine style will not be disappointed either.
One of the trendiest part of town is Leith. There are many restaurants, bars and now the Ocean Terminal where you can see the Royal Yacht Britannia.
