  1. Social scenes

    Liberty Village has two buildings: Shrubhill & Murano. Shrubhill is directly on Leith Walk, whilst Murano is just a minute’s walk away across the road.

    Both buildings are just a 2 minute walk from the nearest bus stop, and it takes roughly 18 minutes on the bus from the main street in the city centre – Princes Street. If you fancy a leisurely stroll you can reach it within 25 minutes. Both of our buildings are near plenty of pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops – so you’ll always find somewhere to go and something to do.

    Leith Walk has plenty of bars and restaurants – make sure you visit Brass Monkey for great drinks and music, and La Favourita for fantastic pizza.

    If you don’t feel like going outside, that’s no problem at all as both buildings have a common room with a ping pong table to use with your flatmates on those rainy days. Shrubhill also has a pool table, so start practicing your trick shots now!

     

  2. What's around

    Liberty Village’s Shrubhill building is located on Middlefield, whilst Murano is located on Amphion Lane.

    Princes Street is the main street for shopping in Edinburgh and offers all the major high street brands and shops you’d expect. Visit Cockburn Street if you’re looking for vintage and independent shops with those more selective pieces for your wardrobe.

    For shopping in Leith, Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre is approximately 15 minutes on the bus from both buildings, and offers plenty of high street shops and restaurants – including a Pizza Express. Also, don’t forget to visit Vue cinema for all the latest releases too!

    Ocean Terminal also has a Pure Gym which is open 24 hours, and has lots of different classes to choose from – so there are no excuses to get fit if you want to.

  3. Travel and transport

    Edinburgh is very easy to travel around, to and from! There are plenty of bus routes, and two train stations with routes to cities all over the UK. Edinburgh Airport is easily accessible by bus or by tram, with lots of flights to various cities in Europe for those who want to travel that bit further afield.

    The bus service in Edinburgh runs from 4am to just after midnight, with a night service available until the following day. With so many routes and buses arriving every 10 minutes, you’ll always be able to jump on a bus somewhere in Edinburgh! Make sure you get yourself a student ridacard which entitles you to student travel discounts galore – just make sure you carry plenty of loose change around with you!

    Liberty Village is just a 2 minute walk to the nearest bus stop which will get you into the city and to University. Useful bus services near Liberty Village are 22, 7, 14 and 49.

    You can also grab the Megabus from Edinburgh bus station, for a cheap weekend trip to Glasgow or anywhere else in the UK that takes your fancy!

Looking for somewhere to stay this summer?

We have a variety of rooms available across amazing cities in the UK. All our properties have close links to city centres and university buildings so you can always find a short stay to suit you.
