Attractions near the Apex City Hotel
The One o’clock Gun
What started as a daily time check for ships in the harbor at Leith two miles from Edinburgh Castle, has since become a much-loved Edinburgh tradition and a popular tourist attraction. Every day except Sunday, at exactly one o’clock, the One o'clock Gun blasts out from Edinburgh Castle.
If you’re wandering along Princes Street at this time, you might see fellow pedestrians momentarily leap out of their skin as the cannon booms high above. Head up to the Castle to witness the One o'clock Gun salute in person, and while you're there, you might want to explore the Castle's grounds for an in-depth look at Edinburgh's rich history.
Pause for thought at the Royal Botanic Gardens
Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens are a resplendent collection of diverse habitats set on a little less than 30 hectares, just two kilometres north of Princes Street in the heart of the city. Dating back to 1670, the Gardens are world famous for their unusual and varied plant collection, most of which is housed in grand glasshouses throughout the park.
Pack up a picnic and enjoy a serene morning wandering through the beautiful parklands, which includes seeing the much-loved Rock Garden and the incredible Redwood trees of the Woodland Garden. Discover fascinating eco-systems and plant life from all over the world in the glasshouses including Britain’s tallest palm tree.
