Various locations around Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
Lots of Choice! Either enjoy walking around the Royal Mile seeing the incredible street performers or book some shows and wander about in-between! With so much going on there’s plenty to keep you going for a few trips. 
We recommend getting the tram in from Ingliston (£8.50 for a family ticket – 2 adults and up to 3 children) ticket includes all day parking and use on trams and buses. Parking in Edinburgh is minimal and very expensive! https://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/ingliston
