Morningside, Edinburgh

The Morningside district is one of the oldest sections of Edinburgh, dating back to the Victorian era. Much of the area’s historic flavour remains to this day, thanks to the town’s small shops, pubs, bakeries, and schools. Since Morningside is largely residential, most of the housing consists of tenements and villas that evoke this same heritage. Along with its small-town charm, this area also offers a movie theatre and several restaurants for visitors to patronise. Book lovers may enjoy strolling by the homes of famous authors, including J.K. Rowling and Ian Rankin.

  • Have a drink at The Canny Mans, one of the oldest standing pubs in Morningside, and get a look at the establishment’s collection of vintage clocks and paintings.
  • Walk by the Morningside Clock, a historic Edinburgh landmark that was originally built for the Morningside Railway Station in 1884.
  • Attend an amateur theatre production at the Church Hill Theatre, built in the 1800s by Edinburgh architect Hippolyte Blanc.

International and domestic travellers who plan to fly into Edinburgh will typically arrive at Edinburgh International Airport, which is about 10 kilometres outside of the city limits. From the terminal, visitors can take the Airlink Express bus service to reach the central downtown district. The local Lothian bus service also runs from the airport to several areas within the town, including Morningside. Bus routes that travel through Morningside include numbers 5, 15, and 38. Since many of the area’s historic sites are located near each other, some guests may be able to reach them on foot from their hotels.
