The Edinburgh AddressAutumn trees The Edinburgh Festival is drawing to a close, the kids have gone back to school and we’re fast approaching the end of summer. Don’t despair though; autumn in Edinburgh is beautiful and fun! We made a list of just a few of the reasons to love Edinburgh in the autumn… On a rainy autumn afternoon head to the National Museum of Scotland. It is absolutely incredible (and free!) Spend all day wandering through the exhibits but don’t forget to visit the café as well for a pot of tea and a homemade scone. On Sundays head down to Stockbridge Market, buy freshly baked bread and homemade chutneys and jams. It’s not just food though – if you’re looking to do some early Christmas shopping check out the jewellery, handbags, soap and cashmere stalls. The evenings will start to get darker earlier so why not grab a hot chocolate (with little marshmallows) and check out The Scottish International Storytelling Festival. Curl up with your drink and be transported to different world. On a frosty autumn day all we want to do is crunch through piles of crispy golden brown leaves. Wrap up in a warm scarf and mittens and head to The Edinburgh Botanical Gardens, The Meadows or Inverleith Park to swish through the leaves and look for conkers. Go for a bracing walk up Arthur’s seat for spectacular views of the city and beyond. When you’ve blown away the cobwebs and your nose and cheeks are rosy, head down to one of Edinburgh traditional pubs for a wee dram to warm your insides and sit by an open fire to warm your outsides. Top tip: If you find a comfy seat by the fire spend the rest of the day there! Remember remember the 5th of November… sip mulled wine or hot soup while at one of Edinburgh many bonfire nights. Bring your own sparklers. With so much to see and do we’re excited already! What are your tips for Edinburgh in the autumn?
