I’ve been to 56 North quite a few times and they never fail to impress. Their gin selections is off the charts - so much so that they were featured in ‘Ginned’ magazine, prompting yet another visit. Service is impeccable, drinks are always well made...More

The gin tasting experience at 56 North. A very interactive experience with lots of information and a very excitable host. I learned lots of information about gin and the process of making it along with tasters. 10/10 would go again

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
