Edinburgh College of Art is a very famous College and is situated near to the centre of Edinburgh. It can be reached on foot or it is possible to take a bus or taxi from Princess Street.

We had an afternoon at the college of art with our 5 year old granddaughter and it was great. She had an amazing time doing experiments in science and 3hrs just whizzed by. The staff were helpful and included her all activities.
