Abbeyhill is a small suburb of Edinburgh, and is one of the oldest parts of the city. Its name came from Holyrood Abbey, which is now a religious historic site. Today, Abbeyhill is home to the new Scottish Parliament and many old homes and churches within the area, and many of the residents still live in old tenement homes that were built in the late nineteenth century. While Abbeyhill is chiefly a residential area with very few businesses or attractions, it is located near many of the city centre’s famous locations.
- Visit The Royal Collection in the Palace of Holyrood House near Abbeyhill and enjoy the many exhibits on display of paintings, jewellery, and many other historic artefacts.
- Wander around the Old Calton Cemetery in Edinburgh right next to Abbeyhill to find the Political Martyr’s Monument, and its many famous residents including philosopher David Hume, famed architect Thomas Hamilton, and painter David Allen.
- Spend an afternoon shopping at Edinburgh's Meadowbank Retail Park that features name brand stores as well as local specialty shops.
Most visitors arrive to Edinburgh via the Edinburgh Airport and take the Waverley Station train into the city centre. From there, guests may choose from a number of transportation options to reach Abbeyhill. Visitors to the area can take the Lothiam buses to the suburb, or hire a rental car. London Road is the main thoroughfare running through Abbeyhill, and A900 is the main highway through Edinburgh. Since the area is not a major tourist attraction, it is easy to find street parking close to nearby shops and attractions. Taxis are also available to transport visitors quickly to Edinburgh suburbs.
