ARDGOWAN HOUSE nestles in EDINBURGH, Scotland's capital and FESTIVAL CITY.
Edinburgh is a beautiful City enhanced by its many open green spaces. It boasts a rich and historic past, and hosts to contrasting towns - the old town and new town - at its heart.
A wealth of tourist attractions, museums and galleries, as well as the prestigious Arts Festival held in August each year, are just some of the reasons why visitors return year after year.
The City has grown up around a series of volcanic hills, and consequently one of the most attractive features of the central area is the number of spectacular vistas, each one seemingly more breathtaking than the last as they open up to surprise and delight the viewer.
By far the best way to discover Edinburgh is on foot, particularly in the Old Town where guided tours are available down the famous 'Royal Mile' from the stunning Edinburgh Castle (home of the royal family whenever they visit Edinburgh) to Holyrood Palace. In the past, this street was lined with merchants selling their wares; today it is still a buzzing central point for cafe society, shops and street activities.
Another familiar monument is Greyfriars Bobby, the little dog who famously guarded his master's grave for many years and was considered to be part of the community.
In more recent times, Edinburgh is now home to the Scottish Parliament, which is located at Holyrood.
Depending on the time of year that you plan to visit Edinburgh, you can choose from a host of seasonal attractions, such as the world famous Edinburgh Military Tattoo, or the Fringe Festival.
For the family, there are a host of exciting things to do around the city, including Our Dynamic Earth, the Edinburgh Playhouse, and of course many cinemas and restaurants.
No matter if this is to be your first visit to Edinburgh, or just your first visit to Edinburgh's Ardgowan Hotel, our staff will ensure that your stay is exciting and memorable.
