11 great places for freshers to visit in Edinburgh
Share This Article:
It's Scotland's capital and one of its most historic spots - but there's no need to be a tourist in Edinburgh. Here's where to eat, drink, dance and sight-see like a local if you're about to start uni here... Eating 1. Ten to Ten in Delhi: A small, student friendly Indian restaurant on Nicholson Street, Ten to Ten is great value with a student discount and the food is superb. The restaurant itself is quirky and decorated with wall and ceiling hangings which give the small space a unique atmosphere and feel. The one and only drawback is that, due to Ten to Ten’s size - it can be difficult to get a table. 2. La Lanterna: A great Italian over in Edinburgh’s more up-market New Town area. Brilliant pizzas and pasta, great lunch time or ‘early bird’ bargains to be had. Drinking 3. The Brass Monkey: Located on Drummond Street in Old Town, near the University gym, The Brass Monkey is a gem of a pub. With perennial student discounts, a great atmosphere and daily film screenings in the pub’s back room (which is made up of sofa-beds and mounds of cushions) The Brass Monkey is quite unique. 4. The Pear Tree: For the rare warmer days The Pear Tree is ideal. The best beer garden in Edinburgh will be rammed as soon as there’s an ounce of sunshine.
