Top tip: book quickly to get a room on a higher level - the views extend across to the Firth of Forth (River Forth’s estuary) and parts of the city.

About Edinburgh

Edinburgh is extremely sought after by students and it’s easy to see why - the city is great for both studying and living. The two universities contribute to Edinburgh’s status as a hubbub of history, culture and education; the University of Edinburgh was ranked 21st in the world’s top universities in 2015 and boasts historic alumni including Charles Darwin and Alexander Graham Bell whilst Edinburgh Napier University has a great focus on employability skills alongside degree courses. The city itself is beautiful and a great place to live and Haddington Place is ideally located to make the most of what Edinburgh has to offer during your student life here. Labelled as the City of Literature, there are also world-famous festivals, iconic attractions, a great fashion scene, shops, bars, restaurants - and even a beach (Portobello) for when the temperature gets into double figures. Edinburgh Castle overlooks the University of Edinburgh - be sure to visit during fresher’s week for an envy-inducing Instagram post.

Leading to the castle, The Royal Mile is the heart of Scotland’s capital and hosts a plethora of landmarks. Just a short walk away is the eclectic Grassmarket, a vibrant area steeped in the city's colourful history. For shopping, head to Princes Street (a 10-15 minute walk from Haddington Place) which is the main shopping area - you’ll find all the national chains including House of Fraser, also known as Jenners which is an Edinburgh institution (the oldest independent department store in Scotland). For the adrenaline junkie amongst us, there’s water sports galore include diving, kayaking, surfing and sailing. There’s also an indoor ski centre, ice skating, paintballing and assault courses. For something a little more peaceful and relaxing, head to one of the city’s parks and gardens. The Meadows is less than a minute’s walk from the University of Edinburgh’s central campus and a great chill out location.
