Edinburgh travel tips

1) Prepare money for the bus ticket in advance in Edinburgh

A peculiarity of buses in Edinburgh is that drivers do not give change for tickets. Therefore, prepare an even amount – £1.60 (€1.8) per ticket. You can buy tram tickets at the ticket office or from a vending machine.

2) Prefer pubs to regular restaurants in Edinburgh

Scotland is primarily about pubs. You can either drink a glass of beer in them or have a tasty and cheap lunch. The average price for the main course in pubs is £6-8 (€7-9). The portions are very large and flavoured with real Scottish culinary culture.

3) Enjoy paintings by Rubens and Monet at the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh

The Scottish National Gallery is not inferior to many European museums and contains many paintings by Rubens, Santi, Monet, and Van Gogh. Moreover, the entrance to the museum is free any day of the week! Another place for art lovers is the Scottish Portrait Gallery, where you can admire self-portraits of famous artists and exhibitions of photographers.
