About the location

Nestled within an area of outstanding beauty and only 23 miles south of Edinburgh, the Borders town of Peebles sits straddling the majestic River Tweed.

But the world famous salmon fishing river - Peebles motto is "Against the stream they multiply" - is only one of the many treasures on offer to visitors.

A Royal Burgh since 1152 and the rule of King David I, Peebles has for many years been a market town cherished by locals and visitors alike for its picturesque and unspoilt character.

The town has something for everyone, from outdoors activities like fishing, walking, golf, cycling and horse riding to fine shopping, award winning restaurants and outstanding accommodation to suit all budgets.

Peebles is also widely being recognised as an arts destination town and many visitors make the trip to enjoy the wide range of local contemporary and traditional art available. The 240 seat Eastgate Theatre & Arts Centre is a centre of excellence attracting touring theatre companies, performing visual arts, dance, craft, music and cinema all year round.

A town for all seasons, be it spring, summer, autumn or winter, Peebles' natural beauty and character will take your breath away. Get to know Peebles with a stroll along the timeless High Street, meander in and about the alleyways and medieval closes and enjoy the stunning walkways along the River Tweed which have barely changed over the passing centuries.
