I've lived in the centre of Edinburgh for five years,
having moved back from London. Before that I lived
in Glasgow, another very vibrant city, with some of
the most friendly people in the world.
Edinburgh's a great city...a wonderful place to live..with
most things I want within walking distance. Edinburgh
has developed beyond all recognition in the last few
years, with lots of new shops, restaurants, bars and
clubs. There has been a housing boom, with huge wave
of property redevelopment, and house prices rising
by over 30% last year.
The best times to be here are during the Edinburgh
Festival in August and after Christmas for
Hogmanay and the start of the New
Year. Both are world famous, attract people from all
over the world and help to dramatcially swell the
numbers of people living in the city.
If you're visiting Edinburgh there a few things you
must not miss. These include Edinburgh Castle, the
National Museum, and the Dynamic Earth. Have a great
time when you visit.
