48 hours in Edinburgh during the Fringe! Our director's 2019 picks of places to go, things to do and see
Hendersons vegetarian deli and shop has been going since 1962 and is still one of our favourite foodie places in Edinburgh...
Hendersons Vegan Restaurant, 25 Thistle Street, EH2 1DX
Now they even have a restaurant which exclusively serves vegan dishes!
Theatre Big Top, Venue 189, Fountainbridge, EH3 9RX
The Edinburgh site for The Lady Boys of Bangkok this year, at Fountainbridge. We love being here!
Lochrin Basin, Fountainbridge, EH3 9QG
...I mean just look at how peaceful and lovely it is around the Lochrin Basin, right on the doorstep of the Theatre Big Top. The perfect place for an early morning jog!
Edinburgh Printmakers, Castle Mills, 1 Dundee Street, EH3 9FP
This open access printmaking studio has fascinating exhibitions to dip into and an amazing cafe and herb garden to boot.
Hampton by Hilton Edinburgh West End, 166 Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, EH3 9RX
Just across the road from our venue at Fountainbridge is the perfect place to lay your head after a busy day at the Fringe (and a night dancing with The Lady Boys of Bangkok!)
Hank's Sandwich Bar, 162 Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, EH3 9RX
Is this the best sandwich bar in Edinburgh? Probably! The perfect, filling way to fuel up.
Grow Urban, 92 Grove Street, EH3 8AP
Grow Urban is a rustic gardening shop and cafe combined. Set in a gorgeous gothic building it has everything you'd need for a spot of urban gardening and the dreamy cakes are something else - don't leave without one! You can read more about it in this article from Edinburgh Live.
