Edinburgh is sure to be high on many people’s lists when it comes to city breaks with a focus on history, culture and good food.
Not only does the city boast a plethora of beautiful buildings, a vast array of museums and more shops than you could possibly visit in a day, but it’s also full of lesser-known gems.
A stones throw from the hotel (an apt description as it’s literally just down a cobbled hill), lies the suburb of Stockbridge.
Home to a host of stunning Georgian buildings and Victorian homes - if you love nothing more than wandering down streets from a bygone era, rooting for gems in charity shops and sampling the delights of local produce then this is a place not to be missed. Along with a generous smattering of bars and restaurants, Stockbridge is certainly worthy of an afternoon’s exploration.
You can’t pass through Stockbridge without noticing the abundance of charity shops. From designer clothing to that novel you’ve been meaning to read, you won’t find a better collection of second-hand goods than on Raeburn Place.
