It's that time of year again! With the Edinburgh Centre ready to welcome new students to Scotland, and knowing that finding your feet in a new city can be difficult, we thought we'd share some suggestions of where to start exploring!
From markets that have a variety of locally sourced foods and crafts to theatres and pubs, here are a few events and activities that we think will be fun ways for you to get to know your new home.
And don't forget that you're always welcome to get in touch or visit us at the Edinburgh Centre for more ideas or just to have a chat! (And watch this space for monthly suggestions of what's happening around Scotland!)
