Royal Mile Backpackers

February 20th 2019

Edinburgh…Royal Mile… you know what to expect!

Now, in January, after the excitements of Hogmanay, the staff at Royal Mile Backpackers are turning their thoughts to wards the International Arts festival, the festival fringe, the Edinburgh tattoo and the summer tourist season!

Its typical of the place. The urban Hostels tend to be livelier and more energetic than their country cousins and Royal Mile is no exception. You can tell from its name where it is: on the internationally famous Royal Mile – right in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town and social hub. It is ideally placed for transport links, for sightseeing as well as lively nights out – it even offers (among many other warm and welcoming touches), a free pub crawl on Thursdays!

So if you’re tempted by the thought of the Edinburgh festivities, I’d book early!
