A Entertainment in Edinburgh City Centre
April 2nd 2007 sees the official start of the works that will produce a refurbished and upgraded Usher Hall. As many of you will be aware, we will be creating a 21st Century Concert Hall with much improved facilities and spaces, including the construction of a new glass wing on Grindlay Street. This is a historic and exciting phase in the Usher Hall\'s development but will, of course, have an impact on the area for a period of some 21 months.

Edinburgh City Centre
The Old Town of Edinburgh is built on a ridge that rises gradually from the Palace of Holyrood to Edinburgh Castle. There are staircase lanes, called Wynds, that lead off this 'Royal Mile' that give the impression of the city being built on multiple levels and buildings that date from the 11th Century. The New Town is also a World Heritage Site with its mix of Georgian town houses and the earliest examples in Europe of tenement flats. The views to be had from the Castle, Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill are dramatic and inspiring.
