There is a wide variety of places to sleep in Edinburgh. Our conference site at 50 George Square is in the very heart of the Old Town, some 5 minutes' walk to Royal Mile. It is situated at the corner of a small square park that students use for lounging, enjoying the sun, having their lunches and conversing peripatetically. If they care to make a few extra steps, they will find themselves on the Meadows, where they can run, have picnics, bring the family for a Sunday brunch, play tennis and golf.
