Princes Street Gardens
In the heart of Scotland’s capital, lying between Edinburgh Castle and the popular shopping streets of the city, Princes Street Gardens provide a welcome and relaxing break for visitors and locals as well as host some of Edinburgh’s most exciting entertainment.
From the Christmas Market and musical performances with firework displays, to walks amongst beautiful flowerbeds in spring, visitors will find the Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh is perfectly located for access to the fun and relaxation that Princes Street Gardens offer.
Surrounded by culture
Providing a welcome break in the centre of Edinburgh, Princes Street Gardens run alongside Princes Street and offer relaxing strolls and benches to rest on. Visitors who have been shopping across the road or climbed down the Royal Mile after seeing Edinburgh’s world-famous castle can stop for lunch by the grand Scott Monument.
The Royal Scottish Academy and the National Gallery of Scotland, which lie between the two sections of Princes Street Gardens, are ideally located for culture all year round. During Edinburgh’s international festival, the Gardens are a picturesque meeting point for surrounding venues.
Music and fireworks
Visitors can look forward to entertainment in Princes Street Gardens as well as relaxation. During winter, the Christmas market spreads festive cheer towards the east end, with an ice rink, international food and drink, and amusement park rides. The Ferris wheel offers beautiful views over Edinburgh’s Christmas lights.
The Edinburgh Festival goes out with a bang every year, and those lucky enough to be in the capital for the end will see the spectacular fireworks display. The concert can be enjoyed best from Princes Street Gardens, where the music is played live. Just a 5-minute walk from the Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh, Princes Street Gardens are perfectly positioned for culture in the capital.
