Things to see in Edinburgh

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Stay at B+B Edinburgh and visit the revamped new National Museum of Scotland. Explore the diversity of the natural world, international cultures, art and design, science and technology and Scottish history, all under one roof. October is all about natural history collections…animal art, creature craft, gallery safaris! So bring the kids and get involved this half-term. Two blocks north, located on the Royal Mile are the City chambers which are to feature in the new Tom Hanks film. The ancient building is to become a temporary Hollywood film set by playing host to the filming of the hotly anticipated film Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. The home of the city’s political elite will become a “double” for an upmarket London hotel. Hanks and Berry were filming in Glasgow last week and the stars of Cloud Atlas are now filming in Edinburgh over the next couple of weeks at locations including the Scott Monument. The film is the latest to choose Edinburgh as a location, with recent projects including horror film The Awakening, starring The Wire’s Dominic West, love story One Day, featuring Anne Hathaway, and Simon Pegg’s black comedy Burke and Hare.
