Portobello Promenade

Just a few miles from the city centre, Portobello, an independent town until 1896, retains its unique character and sense of identity due to its elegant Georgian and Victorian architecture. Today’s architecture and the two miles of sandy beach, make Portobello a gorgeous seaside suburb that has become a must for many visitors of Scotland’s capital city. Be ready to meet large crowds if the weather is good, and enjoy a great choice of bars, cafes and pubs in the promenade, as well as the kids’ favourite ice-cream van!

Our recommendation: The Beach House, with lots of homemade cakes, organic tasty food and delicious hot chocolate!
