The Elephant House

 Opened in 1995, The Elephant House has established itself as one of the best tea and coffee houses in Edinburgh. Made famous as the place of inspiration to writers such as J.K. Rowling, who sat writing much of her early novels, including Happy Potter,  in the back room overlooking Edinburgh Castle. 

Here Elizabeth, Michaela, Mariama, Sara, and Julia all enjoyed lunch in this popular spot.

The Edinburgh Dungeon 

Today Mikayla, Amanda, Baily, Sami, and Lilly ventured off to the Edinburgh Dungeon where we learned about historic tales that you do not here every day.
The Edinburgh Dungeon brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and rides in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s hilarious, fun, and it’s sometimes quite scaryThe Edinburgh Dungeon is an 80 minute journey through 1000 years of Scotland 's horrible history.
