Academy Sports Centre
10, Arboretum Road
The sports centre is a gymnasium attached to the Edinburgh Academy Junior School.
There is free parking at the venue. If you are coming by public transport the best buses from town are the 8 or the 27. Taxis from town will cost in the region of £7.
Tea and Coffee making facilities and a small kitchen area will be available for your use, along with snacks and nibbles otherwise it is advised that you bring your own lunch as there is no onsite catering. Shops are about a 10 minute walk but may require a car for speed and convenience.
This year we will be using the pub Daylight Robbery on Dublin Street in the New Town. On Friday we shall meet there for casual drinks. If you wish you may also order food.
On the Saturday there will be a buffet as a gift from Black Boar Swordsmanship from 8pm in the basement area that we have booked especially for our own use.
The Pub does a good selection of ales (We have sampled several, that’s the sort of commitment to the cause we have ) and other drinks.
The area around Dublin Street is a home to a lot of hotels and B&Bs and very near the bus and train stations. We suggest you look in this area for your accomadation.
