Some fun facts we know at Edinburgh Apartments

December 11th, 2012 · No Comments · edinburgh

We like to keep giving you as much information as possible to give you loads of reasons why you would want to book to stay at our Edinburgh Festival Apartments so here are some little bits of information just for you.

1. Edinburgh has about half a million people living in a whole range of homes and Edinburgh Apartments.

2. Many Edinburgh Apartments are rented out to some of the 62,000 University students every year.

3. During the Edinburgh Festival the population swells to over 1 million making it one of the largest populated cities for the month of August – no wonder its so hard to book an Edinburgh Apartment.

4. Mary Queen of Scots was born here at Edinburgh Castle.

5. Edinburgh has over 13 million visitors every year many staying at our Edinburgh Apartments.

6. At the last count there are nearly 1000 pubs in Edinburgh to stagger your way around!

7. And over 1300 restaurants in Edinburgh not counting coffee shops!

8. There are 13 museums and galleries in Edinburgh all close to many of Edinburgh Apartments.

9. And over 200 monuments – sorry to say I can only name a few – must get looking for some. I know we have Grey Friars Bobby next to our George IV Bridge Edinburgh Apartment.

10. Edinburgh has a nick name – Auld Reekie because of all the chimneys that were used to burn coal, many have been replaced with gas :-(

11. Edinburgh Castle is built on an extinct volcano.

12. The Royal Mile is called this because it is a mile long with two Royal buildings at either end – Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle.

13. Edinburgh is said to be one of the most haunted places in Europe and we have loads of ghosts tours from outside our Royal Mile Edinburgh Apartments all day and night.

14. In the 18th and 19th Century the Grassmarket used to be where the horse and cattle market was held -funny that now its just a “cattle market of a different type”

15. JK Rowling penned her famous novel “Harry Potter” in the Elephant Cafe next to our George IV Residence Edinburgh Apartment.
