  • we don't rate churches because the Holy place where we worship our Lord is to rate first ourselves..but the Father of St.John's was a very helpful in giving information upon history of the Church
  • Beautiful church which uses its external space to make social commentary with art, the crypt is a lovely stone arched cafe and shop and is a nice place to have soup on a chilly afternoon
  • Beautiful space and a haven from the city bustle.
  • Nice church located near the center, it has beautiful paintings on the windows. Its not very crowed even on august, so you can calmly stay here for a while.
  • It's open to the public to get inside but I'm not sure if you're allowed to take any photo. And it's definitely worth seeing if you happen to walk by.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
