From the atmospheric cobbled streets of the Old Town to the beautiful Georgian avenues of the New Town, Edinburgh is one of the UK’s most beautiful cities.

A place that fuses ancient history with metropolis living, Edinburgh is a compact city that’s packed full of shopping experiences, historic attractions, gardens and plenty of restaurants and cafes where you can relax.

At the heart of it lies its imposing castle and one of Scotland's most iconic visitor attractions. Perched on top of its own volcanic rock at the summit of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle is home to the famous Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and has witnessed some of the British Isle’s most important historical events.
