The Study Abroad UK Edinburgh Trip
Wednesday 18th May 2022
Our students tell us this is famous and everyone wants to join our trip to Edinburgh so I thought it was about time that I told you what it is about. Firstly as young people do not get up early we depart at 10 am. Our tour director Mark Reeves and his assistant welcome everyone on the coach. During the journey to our first stop, our guides talk about Edinburgh and we have a quiz. Our first stop is Gretna Green. Gretna Green is amazing and famous for people eloping to get married. Arriving in Edinburgh late afternoon we take a guided tour around Edinburgh taking in all the points of interest. After settling in our accommodation we head out to dinner. Our favourite place is Cosmo. Cosmo is an "all you can eat" buffet and this is just what hungry Study Abroad UK students need after their journey. The food is amazing and there is something for everyone including pudding. Back in the accommodation, everyone is socialising. The next morning we eat a leisurely buffet breakfast and grab a packed lunch for a visit to Edinburgh castle. Our guides are on hand to point out any interesting facts and answer questions. Picnic lunch on site. This afternoon is free time or students can join our guides for a walk to Arthurs Hill to see the panoramic views of Edinburgh. This evening we are enjoying a Scottish fish and chip supper for our dinner and then we are having a spooky underground ghost walk. More socialising follows and after a good nights sleep and breakfast, we head over to the Museum of Scotland which is packed full of interesting stuff. The coach departs around midday for our next stop-off point which is in the lake district in Cumbria, we take in the breathtaking scenery and board a paddle steamer for a cruise on Lake Windermere and then we join our coach at the other end of the lake. We make our way back home arriving early evening.
