What travelers to Old Town are saying

Took 18 yr old and 14 yr old daughters on my own for a treat for a few days. We visited the Castle, People's Museum ( fab), Children's Museum ( excellent) and a couple of Fringe venues. Ate at Jamies and also Frankie and Benny's where the staff were really happy, just singing and grooving along to the music, creating a really friendly and fun atmosphere. You must visit ForsythsTearooms ( hidden away down a little alley off the Mile, opposite Children's Museum) with a very friendly lady who has been there 16 yrs and makes a fab breakfast and afternoon tea, just like being in your gran's front room.
