Otherworldly Opulence in Old Town

Famous for being a highly walkable city break location, the centre of town is just short drive from Edinburgh Airport. You can hop on and off the award-winning guided bus tours that set off from centrally-located Waverly Station, allowing you to visit amazing attractions like Edinburgh zoo, the Royal Yacht Britannia and the botanical gardens at your own pace. The city boasts a truly magnificent focal point that no other destination in the world can rival – Edinburgh Castle. All activity in the city pivots around this grand old landmark, a magnificent medieval stronghold in the heart of town that sits proudly atop a volcano.

After visiting the castle, tourists should first head to Old Town. Prepare to discover the location that Lonely Planet describe as 'the most gothic city outside of Transylvania', characterised by spindly blackened buildings and opulent Reformation era edifices. Photographers will love snapping the dramatic scenery, which extends all the way from the lavish Royal Mile down to the awe-inspiring Holyrood Palace – the site of Scottish parliament. This magnificent medieval street is peppered with quirky cafes, eccentric souvenir shops and ancient pubs. Themed attractions like The Real Mary King's Close – a seriously spooky tour of Edinburgh's ancient underground city streets – and sumptuously gothic restaurants make this a must-see part of the city. If you get peckish in the Old Town, make your way down to the glorious Grassmarket for some traditional Scottish fare or a refreshing beverage at The Last Drop - an old brewery with a fascinating frightening heritage.

Sensational Shopping and Arty Inspiration in New Town

The New Town offers a cool, cosmopolitan vibe that contrasts with the ethereal ambience of its older counterpart. Take a stroll through beautifully manicured foliage in Princes Street Gardens and set your eyes upon the statuesque Scott's Monument. The area is resolutely urbane and one of the best destinations for fashion-fans in the UK, offering an endless array of designer department stores as well as high street shops and one-off boutiques. In the New Town, you'll find plenty of artistic hot spots like the National Gallery of Scotland as well as the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and plenty of small scale exhibitions to boot. Foodies should make their way to Rose Street to discover a gourmand heaven of award-winning restaurants, pubs and bars. There are options to satisfy every taste bud, from belly-busting Scottish breakfasts to traditional 'haggis tatties and neeps' as well as succulent seafood.

For outdoorsy types, Edinburgh is also a great place to explore the wild Scottish scenery. Trek up Arthur's Seat for a panoramic view of the city or book a tour to Loch Ness or the Highlands, where you can hear all about the ancient Celtic folklore from the Scots themselves.
