Edinburgh

Take an extinct volcano, an Old Town straight from medieval times, and elegant Georgian townhouses.

Loading...

Add in Michelin-starred restaurants, vibrant nightlife and a packed calendar of festivals, and you've got a city that genuinely has universal appeal. Edinburgh, you’re spoiling us.

Edinburgh Castle

You can’t miss it, so you might as well explore it. Edinburgh Castle is home to serious royal bling — the Scottish crown jewels. Visit at lunchtime for the firing of the 1 o’clock gun. Remember your ear plugs.

The Palace of Holyroodhouse

Live like a Queen… or at least check out what it would be like to live like one at the Queen’s official Scottish residence. Nose around the State Apartments and steal a glimpse of the royal chamber.

National Museum of Scotland

From Dolly the Sheep to dinosaur bones, the interactive displays bring discovery to life: who wouldn’t want to put their F1 driving skills to the test in a racing simulator or challenge a robot to spell your name? And it’s free.

National Galleries of Scotland

Like your art fine? Drop into the Scottish National Gallery at the Mound. More personal? The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is where Sir Billy Connolly rubs shoulders with Sir Walter Scott and a semi-naked Alan Cumming. Tuck into tea and cake at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art under the steely gaze of Paolozzi’s 15ft metal man, Vulcan.

Royal Yacht Britannia

This floating palace is berthed in the lively port of Leith. Tour the royal apartments and try to figure out where they kept the on-board Rolls Royce. Dine in style on champagne and scones in the Royal Deck Tea Room.
