Morningside offers plenty to entertain. It is home to the famous Dominion Cinema, a family run four-screen cinema with an opulent art deco interior. The Church Hill Theatre, in Morningside is a popular Festival Fringe and amateur dramatics venue. And then there is the Wild West Street, a hidden gem, which was built in the 1990s to create a Wild West ambience for a furniture business but still stands today.
 

Visitors to Morningside can still see The Morningside Clock, a famous timepiece which once stood in the middle of the road as the clock for rail passengers at the now closed Morningside Railway Station. Also of historic interest is Holy Corner, where there is a church on each corner of the intersection.
 

If you are feeling thirsty after visiting all of Morningside's attractions then drop into the famous Canny Man's pub, a unique establishment where no mobile phones or cameras are allowed.
 

The Braid Hills Golf Course is a short drive from Morningside and offers unparalleled views across the whole of Edinburgh.
 

Buses run frequently from Morningside into the city centre. The journey takes around 15 minutes.
