Edinburgh is a truly beautiful city, famous for its amazing architecture and picturesque views. So, no wonder it is such popular destination for couples at this time of year. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and if you’re looking for romantic things to do in Edinburgh, help is at hand.
Romantic Things to do in Edinburgh
Fall in love with a romantic Valentine’s Break at Parliament House Hotel.
Picture this … a comfortable and spacious double room right in the heart of the city, with Champagne waiting for you on arrival. An indulgent Afternoon Tea for two with bubbly at the nearby Eteaket tea rooms. And, a hearty Scottish Breakfast the next morning in MP’s Bistro to round it all off.
A Night at the Theatre
There are lots of fantastic productions on this February, including FastLove: A Tribute to George Michael, This Is Elvis and The Sound of Music.
Climb to the top Calton Hill
Our hotel is just at the bottom of Calton Hill – the perfect place for a romantic walk. It’s a relatively easy hill to climb, with a pathway right to the top.
When you get there, you’ll be rewarded with stunning views over the city. There are lots of fascinating landmarks to explore up there too, including the National Monument, Nelson Monument and Old City Observatory.
Gaze at the Night’s Sky
Stargazing is one of the top romantic things to do in Edinburgh, on a clear night. The Royal Observatory Visitor Centre in Edinburgh puts on Public Astronomy Evenings on Fridays in winter. Learn how to find your way around the constellations with the naked eye. Then, get a closer look using state-of-the-art technology.
This is a very popular experience and must be booked in advance. The Observatory is on Blackford Hill and can be reached by car or taxi, or a bus and then a 15 to 20 minute walk. Please see the website for directions.
With all these romantic things to do in Edinburgh for couples, book a Valentine’s Break at Parliament House Hotel. You’ll certainly earn some brownie points with the other half! Call us on 0131 478 4000 or book online today.
