    Definitely worth a visit as it is free! We really enjoyed walking around the gardens and on street parking is available close by. My advice would be to take lots of change if driving in Edinburgh as not many of the machines take card. We were lucky to find a spot on the street with a machine that takes card payment. The cafe is really lovely and they use produce they've grown in the gardens. The glasshouse was shut for refurb so hopefully next time we visit we will be able to see it. The staff in the cafe were very friendly and the cafe was very clean and well looked after.

    What a fantastic place! Right on my doorstep but hadnt taken the time to visit until the last day of the season.
    Very varied, a relaxed vibe and fantastic lunch in the cafe. All the staff were friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Will be back in 2023! Thank you!

    Not a large market but has a good range of businesses & products, lovely location next to the castle and well arranged. Certainly worth a visit for both locals & tourists.

    I dearly wish that the Edinburgh City Art put on a Celtic Revival Exhibition, especially a retrospective on John Duncan, one of Edinburgh's greatest artists.

    There's three or four of John Duncan's paintings in the City Arts Centre. He brings such beautiful colour and detail to the canvas to bring a wonderful portrayal of Celtic folklore. You can see he was influenced by the pre-Raphaelites especially Rossetti and Italian art frescos.

    The arts centre has the superb Tristan & Isolde the classic mythical Romeo & Juliet tale of forlorn love. They hold the love potion that will make them love each other for eternity, but it was not to be, Isolde is betrothed to King Mark of Cornwall. Tristan is taking Isolde on a ship from Ireland to Cornwall for her wedding. Their tale more or less ends like Romeo & Juliet.

    Go across to the Scottish National Gallery and see Duncan's magnificent Saint Bride. At first glance I did not see Saint Bride, I just was mesmerised by the two angels. The designs on their cloaks details Christ's story. Wonderful.

    Such an eclectic curation of artists in so many media meant we were glad we’d allowed enough time. Well worth a visit if your anywhere near Portobello.

    Well done to the young staff here who were busy but took time to help us. Their care about a young person with severe allergies was excellent. Top marks for getting this important part of hospitality right

    Mostly non veg options, but pastries are good. The best is museum which requires a minimum 3-4 hours for seeing everything

    Five minutes from the madness of the Mile , the oldest remaining part of the University
    awaits.
    Firstly, enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the Old College quadrangle then step into the gallery's modern 'white cube spaces' and its dramatic 19th century gallery.
    The current Festival exhibition here hosts installations and artwork by Celine Condorelli. It's an inventive and inspiring collection and her use of materials is highly original.
    Welcoming ,helpful staff. Free entrance. Kids'activity pack linked to the exhibition available .

    Excellent Saturday Market. Busy but not too busy. A good place to meet and chat or just browse. We bought fresh fish and vegetables and they were all totally delicious.

    Small , uber stylish gallery and dedicated production hub.
    The Miyako exhibition is stunning and thought provoking . The effect of time on both the human body and our prized personal items is graphic and brave, considering the constant advance of youth driven media (apologise ? ok, a wee bit)
    This iconic Japanese photographer is of the post war generation yet so relevant. The Frida shoes were my Nike Nirvana I suppose but the red diving suit so sums up her political core.
    XXL thanks to John who was 101% in the know and dealt with our questions perfectly. John also let us go through the photographic journal books which showed linked photos from the three collections.
    Ishiuchi Miyako was unknown to me but thanks to the exhibition , I've had a 'wee wake up call' and we all need that post Covid.

    Nestled in Barony Street, away from the crowds. Stylish Interior rooms. The exhibition of Lorna Robertson's new paintings was uplifting and thought provoking.
    Welcoming staff. Well worth a detour.
    Exhibition runs until mid September and is available online.

    A lucky find for lunch in Leith. We stumbled on this place by chance, initially for coffee and stayed on for food. The coffee could have been hotter, but the food from Rost was amazing - pheasant burger and venison burger both delicious and the best fries ever - crispy and So good with oregano seasoning. We will be back 😊
