Learn English in Edinburgh...


Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is partly an accident of Nature, for the city is built upon a jumble of hills and valleys. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the natural geography was enhanced by the works of a succession of distinguished Georgian and Victorian architects. The result today is high drama. There are countless spots where Edinburgh looks less like a city and more like a theatrical backdrop. The view from Edinburgh's Calton Hill, across the River Forth to Fife, looks more like a scene from ancient Rome.

The Palace of Holyroodhouse is now the residence of Her Majesty the Queen when she and other members of the Royal Family make their regular visits to Edinburgh. The Palace is normally open to the public, who are admitted to the State apartments and the historical apartments. Mary, Queen of Scots, spent the last six tragic years of her reign here.

Edinburgh and the whole surrounding region is a golfers' paradise, and many of the private clubs welcome visitors. The City of Edinburgh itself runs six golf courses, and there are no fewer than 28 courses altogether within the city boundaries.

The City of Edinburgh owns the King's Theatre and the Royal Lyceum Theatre, with plays and other shows presented by either resident or touring companies the year round.

Edinburgh possesses a wide range of restaurants which offer menus to suit all tastes and pockets. Visitors looking for the cuisine of other lands and cultures will find restaurants representative of, amongst others, France, Italy, Switzerland, America, Turkey, India, Bangladesh and Hong Kong. Apart from the restaurants the visitor will also find that the city's pubs include a considerable number of particular distinctions and character, many with Victorian or Edwardian interiors carefully conserved.

The area surrounding Edinburgh forms the beautiful lowlands of Scotland. The farmland of East Lothian, some of the richest in the country, rises to windswept hills.
