Edinburgh is one of those places i’ve been desperate to visit for a really long time. I went last year to do a book signing, but all I saw was the book shop, the hotel & the airport. I didn’t quite get the fill of historic Edinburgh that I had hoped and I always hear so many amazing things about it so I sat down with Poppy one afternoon and booked it. We decided to do a road trip (I know, you probably think i’m crazy) but there is something I find quite fun about driving and it adds something extra to the experience. All the best chats, lols and singing happen on long road trips and trust me, this was an epic one. Myself, Alfie, Poppy & Sean set off in the morning and headed to Liverpool for the first night. As I was appointed the driver, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to do the full 8 hours in one day, so we decided to split the journey and make the most of Liverpool on our way up. I’ve visited Liverpool a few times before and I absolutely love it. It’s one of those cities that feels so clean and spacious and the people of Liverpool are always some of the most friendly and compassionate people you will ever meet. We stayed at the Titanic Hotel, which we found online as we were instantly drawn into the cool warehouse vibe of the rooms (it may have also been because of my love of all things Titanic related). The staff here were lovely and extremely tentative and the evening meal we had down in the restaurant was one of the best meals i’ve had in a long time. The atmosphere was just as I like it, dim light and lot’s of space (sounds particular but there’s nothing worse than a crowded, hot restaurant with bright lights…someone tell me i’m not alone here).

The next morning we all packed up the car and set off for Edinburgh. The drive up through the green hills was so breathtakingly beautiful. Although we drove 4 hours on the same stretch of road (I think I’ve driven the entirety of the M6) every bend we went round there was a view that looked like something from a postcard. There was not one part of me in that moment that wished I’d hopped on a plane instead, I’m not sure the boys who were sat in the back would agree with me though. We decided to stay in an AirBnb for our trip. I’ve personally never used AirBnb before, but I was very excited to give it a go and we found the perfect flat that was a great walking distance from both the new town and old town. It had beautiful high ceilings and the buildings were so decadent. We explored little cafes and sat on trip advisor to work out the best places to visit whilst we were there. One place that quite a few people had recommended we try for breakfast was “Urban Angel”. It had a really nice feel to it, and all the food served was organic and locally sourced (something that I’m quite used to now living in Brighton). It had a really nice relaxed vibe and the food was delicious. 

edinburgh-20-of-52edinburgh-21-of-52edinburgh-10-of-52edinburgh-45-of-52edinburgh-13-of-52edinburgh-12-of-52edinburgh-11-of-52edinburgh-33-of-52edinburgh-26-of-52edinburgh-19-of-52edinburgh-18-of-52We spent quite a bit of time exploring the area, but my favourite part was the old town. Particularly Cockburn Street on the way up to the Royal Mile that just felt like something in Harry Potter with its tall slender buildings winding up and around. The Royal Mile itself was packed with street performers and fringe festival goers. Although we didn’t decide to go to Edinburgh to visit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, it made the trip that little bit more interesting. There was always something to stop and watch, whether that was someone breathing fire, telling jokes or playing music. We were very lucky that for the 4 days we were there, we had sunshine on 3 of them. We were constantly being reminded that we’d been so lucky to visit and have such great weather. I had one of those moments when we were strolling around of pure happiness with the sun shining, the beautiful scenery around us and someone playing the bagpipes, it’s impossible not to feel a huge smile creep over your face. It was so idyllic. Having lived near the City Of Bath, Edinburgh felt like a larger, slightly more grand scale of that. The streets seemed to go on forever and even though the architecture is some of the most beautiful I’ve experienced, it almost felt never ending. The flats where we stayed curved around a beautiful private park that is shared amongst residents living in the square. The idea of this made me want to purchase a property right there and then. We were told that once you buy or rent a property in the squares, you are given a key to the beautiful parks to use privately. SO DREAMY!

Another place we stopped to eat was “Daylight Robbery” on Dublin Street. A quirky little cafe with a bar that offered a slightly different vibe in the evenings. The menu was great for vegetarians, vegans or the health junky and I ate the most delicious french toast I’ve ever had whilst we edited and did a bit of a work catch up. We also visited The Grassmarket on my mums recommendation (she’d visited a couple of days prior to us). In Grassmarket there were lot’s of cute little shops and amazing views of the castle. We stopped by “Pumpkin Brown” which was a really lovely little cafe with fresh juices and healthy snacks (I wanted a massive slab of chocolate cake at this point so I didn’t go for any of the raw cakes, however, Poppy tried some and said they were delicious). Eating in Edinburgh was so easy. There were so many different places to eat, you have all your traditional chain restaurants and so many independent places too. We had such a long list of places we wanted to try, but we didn’t have enough meals in the day to do so.

On day 2, we decided to go to Edinburgh Zoo as it was our only cloudy day. It was very easy to drive to from the center of the city and the zoo itself was very spacious (and hilly – DEAR GOD…I had no idea how up and down Edinburgh was. I gave my legs the best work out whilst I was there). We even got to see a panda and feed the penguins, but the one thing that made the day so great for me, was getting to feed an armadillo. Those things are just TOO CUTE and not something I’ve ever really thought about before. The shopping in Edinburgh is amazing. There is every single shop you could ever want and need. The one thing I also loved was the huge amount of independent shops selling all kinds of very interesting bits and pieces. Although shopping was actually the one thing we didn’t do that much of  (I know..shocking). 

edinburgh-15-of-52edinburgh-16-of-52edinburgh-14-of-52edinburgh-39-of-52 edinburgh-37-of-52 edinburgh-36-of-52edinburgh-32-of-522h2a9418-2Due to the fact that we were visiting Edinburgh over Fringe Festival, we were handed flyers for hundreds of different shows and performances happening in multiple different venues all over the city. We had decided that this visit was to make the most of Edinburgh and it’s beautiful sights (i.e. to be the biggest tourists ever), but we did manage to fit one show in which was “Castles In The Sand” by James Loveridge. James is the boyfriend of my friend Lucy, and I was desperate to see his show as I knew it would be hilarious. We met up with Marcus who was also visiting Edinburgh around the same time as us, and together we all sat in the downstairs of a bar and watched the show. I’ve never really been to see a stand-up comedian and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. It was brilliant and gave me a sudden desire to want to come back next year for Fringe and make a list of all the shows and performers I’d love to watch. Before leaving, we went to a little cupcake shop on Dundas Street called “Cuckoos Cupcakes” which I urge ALL OF YOU visiting Edinburgh to go to. They were some of the best cupcakes I’ve ever had. They were HUGE and they had them in every single flavour you could imagine, In fact I’m drooling just thinking about them. 

I felt so comfortable walking around Edinburgh, although it was a large city, it never felt overwhelming, even with it being one of the busiest times to visit. Everything I found myself standing in front of, I wanted to take a photograph of it. It was so breathtakingly beautiful and it completely captured my heart. On the 9-hour drive home (I know, call me crazy) I was already thinking about when I could plan my next visit and I miss it already. It’s one of those places I could definitely see myself living (it’s even near the sea). Although slightly a little too far for me to set up home, it’s definitely one of my favourite cities and I will be going back on the regular! Thanks for having me Edinburgh.

    Dear Zoe,
    Your trip sounds likes it was a lot of fun! I live on the east side of the US and I have a really packed schedule, but I’ve always wanted to go to Europe. My mom finally agreed that we would go to France for my grandma’s birthday to visit some family friends next summer. I was so excited when I found out, I felt like I was bouncing off the walls!

    When I watched your vlogs about your travels in Edinburgh, I really wanted to go there. A few days later, on the login screen on my laptop (Windows 10 changes the pictures every so often), there was a picture of these old, colorful townhouses or apartments from Edinburgh. The picture looked so cool and so pretty! Now this is all making me really want to go to Europe and see all the sites I can see.

    Thanks you for sharing your journey with us. And thank you for being such an amazing person.

    Celeste xx

    (P.s. I read ur first book in a boutique a week, now I’m onto ur second book and I’m more than halfway through it and I started it this morning! Can’t wait for the third one to come out, I got one of the signed on especially on pre-order!)

I’ve often thought about moving there but I chose Brighton instead too!

    This makes me appreciate my city so much more. I have lived in Edinburgh all my life and I feel like I’ve become too acclimatized to all it’s little quirks and amazing architecture.i don’t visit the heart of the city very regularly but I think I need to hop on a bus and go on a long wander.

  • Gorgeous pictures, I’m gutted I missed you – I visited Edinburgh for the first time the week before you I think! But I agree it’s absolutely stunning and the Fringe Festival just added to the experience. I loved seeing the shows and all the different types of performers and they were all so talented! Glad you had such a lovely time; all those cafes sound lush, I love cute cafes like them!



  • you look so beautiful in the first picture Zoe! <3

  • Love this blog post! Edinburgh looks like such a beautiful place. As an American, we don’t quite have the beautiful architecture like the U.K. has.

Thank you for always inspiring me and putting a smile on my face.

    I’ve been to Edinburgh before but tbh we didn’t do that much as we mainly looked around not too far from the hotel we were staying at, so I wish when we went there we would of explored more. I’d love to go to the Fringe one day as well. On the property front I think you should just go ahead and buy it, why not? haha x

    If you ever have the chance, you have to visit at Christmas time. Edinburgh is just magical at Christmas!

    You really are spoiling us with this blogs! Again, amazing photos (especially the one with Alfie, it’s so cute ☺☺) and you’ve put everything well — it’s a lovely round up of Edinburgh it makes me want to live there. I’m glad you had a great time and ate those delicious cupcakes that make my mouth water. I really enjoyed this blog and I feel like the best time to read them is when I’m wrapped up into a blanket, I have pjs on with pumpkins on that (cause HALLOWEEN IS COMING) and hot cocoa. It almost feels as if I took the road trip myself, ha ha but I didn’t *dramatic sigh* *wiping off my fake tears* Anyways, well done Zoe!! I loved this blog! Lots of love and autumn leaves xx

    p.s: I also miss your vlogs… When can we expect new one?

  • This sounds like such a wonderful getaway with family :) My best friend was in Edinburgh last year performing in fringe and I remember her telling me about Cuckoo Cupcakes! They look absolutely delicious. I’ve also recently been watching Outlander (total guilty pleasure!) and am now dying to go to Scotland. My fiance and I are planning our Honeymoon for next fall and may have to stop there on our trip!

    This is such a wonderful post! Your photography is absolutely stunning and it’s great to hear that you all had a lovely getaway :) Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve always wanted to go to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as being a thespian myself, it’s sorta required to do so. I’m going to have to book a visit next year!

  • Lela Rose

    all these pics make me want to photograph again! If you ever come to America, visit Sedona, Arizona. It’s so beautiful!

  • Jennifer Pittam

    Lovely post, I have to visit Edinburgh for soon for work. Hope to try some of the places you mentioned.


  • Those pictures look amazing. My sister lives not to far from Edinburgh but as of yet I’ve not been. May have to pay a visit

  • Gez Headen

    Amazing photographs Zoe, you are very talented. xx

  • These photos are amazing, Edinburgh is somewhere I am desperate to visit, and this post has made me want to do that even more now.

    Jess x

  • Holly

    I live in Dumfries & Galloway and (call me biased) but the drive from here to Edinburgh (1 hour 45) is one of the best I have ever seen. Scotland as a whole is so picturesque and I’m so lucky to live here :) I’m so glad you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh Zoe! x

  • Holly

    Also forgot to say – the Primark in Edinburgh has five floors. I repeat, FIVE FLOORS. The nicest time I’ve found to visit Edinburgh is at Christmas. There’s the wall of lights, the market which has theeee most lovely banoffee crepes, ice skating and music. It’s just so Christmassy (and it’s free!) Ahh I could rant all day.
    Holly x

  • Nicola Curtis

    Do you mean “attentive”, not “tentative”?
    A bit more thought as to commas and apostrophes wouldn’t go amiss, either….

  • I think we’ve all fell in love by just looking at your photos! I am visit next summer and I cannot wait :) x


  • Flor C.

    Edinburgh looks amazing, it’s a dream of mine to go someday, it seems so magical ! thanks for sharing it x

  • Steph

    These pictures are beautiful! Does anyone know what camera Zoe uses or one that is similar but just as good?:)

  • mia Elizabeth

    Zoe is such an inspiration and inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and create my own blog. i created it yesterday it’s not to zoe’s standard but i’m still new to this whole blogging thing. i would really love it if everyone could check it out and maybe give it a follow?


  • Zoe is one of the bloggers that make me homesick to the places that I never visited. Amazing photography ❤️

  • LOVE this Zoe, what amazing pictures. Fingers crossed we should be nipping up there one weekend in December, I can imagine the Christmas markets would be absolutely beaut. Immy x


  • Wanderlust Boulevard

    Gorgeous photos, Zoe! It looks beautiful in Edinburgh!

  • Mia Awesom

    do you find it awesome that Zoe gets to travle the world yet got more exited over something in her home country than abroad? : )

    • Catherine

      It’s not her home country, but yeah that is awesome.

      • Hannah Crawford

        It is pretty much her own country, as a Scottish person I consider myself both Scottish and British, since the UK can pretty much be considered one country all together :)

        • Catherine

          I’m Scottish too ;) The UK is a state, Scotland and England are countries. We’re part of the UK but not England, I guess that’s my point. People often think Scotland is just an extension of England. I don’t know about you but I get called English all the time, even by English people. It’s important to make the distinction.

  • Mia Awesom

    Me and my family are OBSESSED with this city, we visit every year in winter. Hey Zoe, have you been to the lush there? its LUSH!!!! get what i did there, no. OK

  • Shauna Meredith

    I have always wanted to visit Edinburgh and this has made be want to visit even more! Looks like such a beautiful place and your photos has really proven that! Looks like I may have to pay myself a visit!


  • Jessica Williams

  • Samantha Ferguson

    So glad you liked Edinburgh Zoe, you should come around Christmas time as it is so pretty and there is winter wonderland that you will want to visit x

  • naz yil

    It’s funny because people always have the habit of wanting what they don’t have, for example I was born in England but moved to Edinburgh and I’ve always felt that I’ve been forced to live here so I see it like hell and I’ve always wanted to move back

  • Lucy Farley

    I live in Scotland but I don’t get to go to Edinburgh to often I wish I did though, one thing I do urge all of you to do is come to Edinburgh at Christmas and experience the German market. Edinburgh is like no other at Christmas and it is so beautiful. I am glad you enjoyed your trip to Edinburgh and hope you come back soon, I would love to meet you next time you come up
    Love you so much zoë

I love you all soooo much that you all have successfully made me feel better and confident enough to start my own youtube channel. It’s called Kara. Noelle if you and alfie want to check it out. I love you guys and Thanks soo much from the bottom of my heart for doing this and making my life more happier. <3 you! Biggest Fan #1. XOXO- Kara.Noelle

  • I have officially added this to my bucket list. My family is orginally from Glasgow before coming to the united states but I so want to go back.


  • Jessica McCune

    I’m traveling to Edinburgh in a couple of months and this is such a good post for inspiration and recommendations.
    I will say my favorite part is the comments and stuff about how a 9hr car ride is long. Here in America that is like a not too long road trip that you could do in one day. I always forget how much smaller the UK is and how close things are. Such perspective.

    Amazing photography, I wish I had the same skills, Edinburgh is somewhere I visit a lot and you definitley captured some of the best bits.xxxxE

    I know its a bit late and I’m unsure if you are going to read this but, your photos are gorgeous, I was wondering if you have ever entered a photography contest and if you haven’t I think you could have great chance of winning- could be a new year resolution. Also, next time you visit Scotland/Edinburgh check out Dalhousie castle it is a great hotel/spa. My parents got married there and it is beautiful!
    love all your posts (and I’m loving reading your new book ‘Going Solo’, keep writing)

  • Hannah Crawford

    I’m from Edinburgh, deeply involved in arts and the Festivals and I love this post purely for how truly accurate it is in its description of one of the world’s most beautiful cities (ok I’m a little biased). Zoe, if you ever want an insider’s tour of the city and the best nooks and crannies of the Festival season, get in touch!! :) <3

    Hi Zoella- I’m glad you enjoyed edinburgh- I am currently on placement year in Livingston (20 mins train from edinburgh). Little tip, If you ever head back to Edinburgh you should take a day and jump on the train to Livingston and explore the designer outlet (It is essentially two massive shopping center which has ever shop imaginable).

  • xenia hackett

    one day I really hope I can go to England and see all the old buildings and the green.

It’s just so amazing how the content you make creates such a great environment. I love your blog and your YouTube and you bring me such happiness and I can’t wait for the day that someone looks up to me as I look up to you.

  • Pastel Petals

    Hi Zoe! I live an hour away from Edinburgh and I think you’ve visited more places than me haha. I love you blogs, vlogs and videos and I was wondering if you could check out me and my friends blog, it would mean a lot, thanks! http://pastelxpetals.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/bedside-essentials.html

  • Rachy

    Totally love these photos, such art! I’ve only ever visited the ‘Edinburgh Zoo’ whilst in Edinburgh and it was amazing – The Pandas were the main attraction that I travelled for but everything else also, just blew me away.

  • Tabby Evans

    From your blogs Zoe, Edinburgh sounds like a beautiful place. I actually watched the vlog where you arrived at The Titanic. You and Poppy look so happy together it puts a big smile on my face, like all your blogs do. Love you Zoe! XXZ

  • Annie

    Gorgeous photos, looks like you had the best time!


  • Amelia Koh

    Zoe, you gotta try scaling Arthur’s seat on your next trip https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e09a1154bc87ef093769daf5004a34cc0949dd565fdcf4c710896dba77ea72e9.jpg over. The view from the top is absolutely spectacular! I love how Edinburgh juxtaposes the old and the new so beautifully. Would love to visit again when I have the chance (and I live in Singapore).

    Glasgow and the whole of Scotland captures my hopeful heart as well :)

    I saw that recently you visited Fat Duck in London and it looked amazing! Heston Blumenthal is a GENIUS. I did a whole blogpost two days ago about my experience at Dinner in Melbourne – another one of his helmed restaurants. Would love to visit Fat Duck on my next trip to London!


  • Eugenie Dixon

    your so inspiring! :)

  • Mia Stevenson

    Edinburgh is pretty cool. A little too busy and touristy for me though. Also I live just near Glasgow so I have to take the train. Scotland is amazing. Wether you’re in Edinburgh or a more country type area it’s beautiful. We are going up to tarbert (which is also great) at the beginning of march for Poppy’s (my dog) first holiday!! My grandpa would go there with his parents when he was young… the b&b where he used to stay still looks the same! Last time we stayed there we were in this log cabin and I really enjoyed it… Also on the drive up there is a chip shop in Arrachor that does fried mars bars!! Extremely unhealthy but extremely delicious!
    Zoe, I don’t know if you’ll see this but I think you are really inspiring… I have anxiety and was really depressed last year, I didn’t really want to continue living. And that’s a lot for a 13 year old.
    I had a panic attack today. I haven’t had one in a few weeks. I just read you’re post about anxiety and it made me feel better. Thanks for that. Last year I didn’t think that I’d see my little cousin start school, I didn’t know if I’d live to my fourteenth birthday… partly your videos helped. I would spend weeks cooped up in my room. Not eating, not leaving the house at all. But seeing other people’s lives on YouTube gave me something to live for. I have dreams… stuff that I want to do, that I want to achieve. You have Alfie, Nala, Percy and Pippin. You have a life. People who adore you, look up to you. I may not have much… but maybe I can do something with my life instead of being depressed, instead of worrying about EVERY detail.
    I didn’t have a great start in life. But I’m not going to live in the past. Thank you Zoella, for helping me realise that I have so much to live for.

    Umm…. that got really deep. Really long too.

    Well if you’ve made it this far then congrats, and thanks.

    Edinburgh is a beautiful city, I have lived in many places all over the world and nothing beats coming back to my home town.
    Your photographs are amazing, truly captured it’s beauty so thank you for that.
    I do web design and my office is on the Royal mile in Edinburgh, so you can imagine going to work each day is a joy!
    One of the things I have never done though is go to the Military tattoo at the Castle, it is on my bucket list though!
    Cheers for being so talented, will keep following your work!

    I can’t stop thanking Lord Zakuza for helping me bring back my girlfriend that left me for another man at her workplace.. I was shocked when she broke up with me and I needed help but everything I did to recover her back did not work. If not for the intervention of Lord Zakuza who I met online, I wouldn’t have gotten back my girlfriend because Lord Zakuza prepared a love spell that brought her back to me within 48 hours. I love my girlfriend and I’m happy getting her back again. Thank you Lord Zakuza and I promise to share my experience with you to everybody so that anyone that needs help in any way can also get help too for you are a good and wonderful man that God has sent to help those who need help.. Here’s his contact information just in case you need any help from him. WhatsApp/call number +1 (740) 573-9483 or Email: [email protected]

  • กางเกงทอม is one of those toys that looks like it is out of this world. Moreover, the sensation it will help you to achieve will be ethereal as well. There are various ridges and grooves installed inside the sleeve of the machinery. This masterpiece will help one sense different sensations. However, depending on the machine you have chosen, the ไข่สั่น will differ as well. For example, it may have a smooth transition inside or the textures.
