    Edinburgh’s packed with great places to enjoy a bite or relax with a drink. We’ve picked out a few favourites that are within walking distance of the office.

     Coffee, Lunch and Snacks

    • Just across from the Fountainbridge office  is Hanks, a bit of an office favourite. Choose from soup, panini, sandwiches, burgers, burritos
    • Other Fountainbridge highlights are Loudens Café (watch out for the delicious cakes), Burger which does pretty good hot dogs as well as its more obvious offering, and the tiny takeaway Crusts, known for its haggis and black pudding breakfast rolls
    • Round the corner on Lothian Road you’ll find the little sandwich chain Philpotts, Thyme for salads and sandwich fillings that’ll have your mouth watering, and Pinto or Taquito, for those days when only a burrito will do (can you see a theme emerging here….)

     Eating out

    • There’s a Zizzi’s restaurant almost on our Fountainbridge office doorstep, which makes it a popular choice for people looking to end the day with a tasty bowl of pasta
    • Also nearby is Croma, a great pizza restaurant, offering different (and delicious) toppings, as well as the classics
    • Some people think Passorn is one of the best Thai restaurants in Scotland – and it’s just round the corner from our Princes Exchange office
    • If you’re after something a bit smarter, try The Apartment. Be warned, they have a particularly good dessert menu

     Drinks

    • Just up on Morrison Street is The Priory, which does great cocktails (and pub grub)
    • If it’s bottled beers you’re after try Ventoux on Lothian Road, named after a stage of the Tour de France
    • There’s also a big selection of beers at the Hanging Bat, and gin, with 49 different distillers to choose from
    • Or you could head to Lebowskis on Morrison Street and try one of their famous White Russians

    Shopping

    There are plenty of choices for shopping in Edinburgh. Princes Street is a walk away, or hop on a bus to The Gyle, for example, if you want a break from the busy city centre.

    • Princes Street is Edinburgh’s main shopping area. You can find everything here, from House of Fraser and Debenhams to Topshop and River Island. There are also two shopping centres at its east end – Princes Mall and St James’ Centre, which houses the wonderful John Lewis
    • For something smarter try George Street, which runs parallel to Princes Street and has shops like French Connection, Karen Millen and Jo Malone
    • Or get away from the hustle and bustle of the centre, by catching a bus to The Gyle or Ocean Terminal shopping centres. They’re especially appealing when you want to stay dry in the rain

  • Sport & Fitness

    You don’t have to go far to keep fit. In Edinburgh office itself you’re especially likely to find rugby and hockey teams looking for new players.

    • If you’re a keen runner, the pedestrian areas of the Meadows and Union Canal are both popular running spots
    • The Meadows also has a large number of public tennis courts available, if you fancy a knockabout
    • There are plenty of gyms near the office, including two Pure Gyms (one at Exchange Crescent and one at Quartermile) and a Virgin Active at Fountainpark
    • Just out of town, the Edinburgh International Climbing Centre boasts impressive indoor rock climbing facilities for anyone from beginners to seasoned veterans
    • The dry ski slope at Edinburgh Snowsports Centre is a great way to prepare for winter. More recently, a tubing slope has been added which is proving popular with families

  • Local attractions, culture and the arts

    Edinburgh comes alive during Fringe season: get the programme and prepare for a busy August. But that’s not all, there’s plenty to do all year round.

    • We’re well placed for exploring Edinburgh’s rich past and vibrant present. Grassmarket and the Royal Mile are a walk away, as is Calton Hill, with its fantastic views over the city
    • The Union Canal runs by our office. Cycle to Linlithgow and Falkirk and you’ll see the true beauty of the Scottish countryside, which will only be improved by lunch at the Falkirk Wheel
    • Or join an Auld Reekie walking tour and discover the secrets beneath our feet as you’re taken through the vaults of the city
    • The National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street offers a fascinating insight into Scottish history. Sign up to a ‘Night at the Museum’ to enjoy drinks and silent discos
    • On a Sunday when the weather’s fine it’s a treat to explore the Botanic Gardens and visit the Glass House and Queen Mother Memorial Garden. Or head over to Stockbridge Market, along the Water of Leith, and pick up organic produce and homemade food in a lovely setting
    • At Christmas time The Dome on George Street does delicious afternoon tea under the lights. While you’re there, give the Princes Street Christmas Market a visit and stock up on presents
    • If you’re a rugby fan, don’t miss the Six Nations tournament, which comes to Murrayfield in February and March each year. Tickets are usually available a couple of months in advance
