Portobello Beach

Just east of Edinburgh lies the picturesque seaside town of Portobello. A charming coastal suburb with two miles of sandy beach and a Victorian promenade. On a sunny day, this is a popular place to visit near the city. Easy to reach from the city centre by bus, in under half-an-hour. Enjoy refreshments in the cafes and bars on the promenade, sunbathe on the golden sands, and visit nearby attractions such as Portobello Swim Centre and Figgate Park. Portobello makes for a great day trip, during your stay with us at Parliament House Hotel in Edinburgh.
