The Essential Guide: 24 Hours In Edinburgh

Winter is here and the Christmas countdown is on, and here at Tessuti, we believe it Tis’ the season to travel. This month, get into the Christmas spirit and visit one of the most magical UK destinations – Edinburgh.


Start off with a breakfast that will get you energised and ready for the busy day ahead. One of our favourite destinations is the Edinburgh Larder. Delicious local food is what this place does best and they offer a diverse selection of exciting seasonal menus for you to enjoy.  Once you are ready to explore, have a morning stroll towards Edinburgh Castle and take in the historic fortress which dominates the city’s beautiful skyline.


Another breathtaking location is the Princes Street Gardens, which mark the divide between the Old and New Town. Around Christmas time, the gardens are transformed into a Winter Wonderland, as they house the Christmas Markets. If you are feeling peckish after exploring the gardens, head to Bia Bistrot – an outstanding restaurant which offers a delicious selection of British and French-inspired food. Enjoy French classics with a creative Gaelic spin in a cosy venue.


Whilst in Edinburgh, you have to walk along some of Edinburgh’s most scenic streets. You are guaranteed to capture some incredible pictures along your route. On the other hand, if you want something that is a bit more organised, there are plenty of tours that you can enjoy. Edinburgh hosts tours surrounding Harry Potter, gin, ghosts, yachts and more – so take your pick!


To finish off your day, catch the sunset from Calton Hill. This spot is the perfect place to see the sunset across the city, with all its landmarks in full view. After a great day of sight-seeing, head to Burgers and Beers Grillhouse, one of Edinburgh’s unique venues for gourmet burgers. This restaurant is a fabulous destination for a dinner time treat.
