Trinity House hotels
One place in Edinburgh that has to be on a tourist’s list is the Trinity House. This particular place is a museum for maritime artefacts, which includes navigation instruments, maps, paintings, and ship models. The historical collections of the Trinity House span a period of more than 200 years, and some of the significant items include mahogany chairs that date back to 1770 as well as six hall chairs that are embossed with the badge of the Trinity House itself. The convening room table features marine items as well, made complete with a model of the Bell Rock lighthouse. Guests exploring the facets of historical Edinburgh will want to visit this place, located on 99 Kirkgate in Leith.
- Come and view the bell from the SS Lord Aberdour at the Trinity House, which was part of an iron paddle-steamer made way back in 1866.
- See the portrait of Mary, Queen of Scots in Edinburgh painted by Daniël Mijtens, a famous Dutch portraiture artist, in 1627.
- Examine the seventeenth century oak charter chest in Trinity House, Edinburgh, which was used to keep deeds and other important records on charity matters for the Corporation.
Trinity House can be reached by bus, and there are two main bus operators in Edinburgh; Lothian and First. Although both bus services run the same routes, one will need to take note that the tickets are not interchangeable, and that the fare structures are different for each company. While it may be convenient to rent a car and get to the Trinity House and other locations, there are hefty parking fines to be cautious of, which can reach up to 40 pounds. This city also has a tram line that runs through the city centre.
