Certainly an eye catcher of a building, you would think it was a little older than some of the buildings surrounding it, it looks a little more eccentric and olde world.

We often go to the story telling centre in the Netherbow during the Edinburgh festival fringe. The acts are always top notch. The staff are helpful. This place has been tastefully refurbished and has an interesting history and exhibition. There is a fantastic little cafe too.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
