Towards the west of Edinburgh lies the charming little town of Maybury. While it is not listed as a major tourist attraction, this is a place that is worth visiting, even if just on a day trip. Maybury is named after civil engineer, Sir Henry Maybury, who was well known for his work on railways in England and Wales between 1880 and 1910. This gorgeous town is home to some amazing examples of art deco architecture, as well as a large number of old houses in the residential area, creating a beautifully picturesque neighbourhood.
- Go on a shopping spree at the Gyle Shopping Centre, located near Maybury in South Gyle; this is Edinburgh’s finest spot for retail therapy.
- Marvel at the beautiful art deco architecture of the Maybury Roadhouse; built in 1935, it was converted into a casino in the late 1990s and has since been the perfect place to enjoy the classiest entertainment.
- Have dinner at the Charleston Restaurant, which has received rave reviews and is considered one of the best restaurants in this area of Edinburgh.
The best way to get to Maybury is by car. Edinburgh’s aptly named Maybury Road is the easiest and most direct route to this little town. The roads in and around the town are well taken care of and perfectly safe for visitors unfamiliar with the area. There are also busses that travel directly from the Edinburgh airport to the Maybury casino, which is a good option for those who don’t wish to drive. Once in the area, walking around is one of the best ways to explore all of the sights.
