Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland. It is a city of diversity offering visitors a range of natural attractions including hills and parks as well as numerous important cultural landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace.
Edinburgh attracts 1 million overseas visitors a year, making it the second most visited tourist destination in the UK, after London.
Come and see what all the fuss is about!
Edinburgh strikes people with it’s stunning architecture. The grand Gothic landmarks and cobbled streets in the Old Town make Scotland’s capital a strong contender for prettiest city in the UK. But it also has a dark side, with tales of witches and grand battles throughout its history. It’s often a good idea to take a guided walk to learn more about Edinburgh’s myths and legends.
The city centre is quite small but it’s also steep. You’ll be getting a good workout as you climb the streets of the Royal Mile in the Old Town.
