Four miles west of the coast and four miles east of glorious Scottish countryside, and with annual summer festivals that bring in 400,000 visitors per year, there’s something for everyone in Edinburgh.
Scotland’s historic capital is a city of endless possibilities for culture-hungry travellers, offering a phenomenal variety of things to do and see. Having recently been dubbed the first UNESCO City of Literature, it’s one of the most diverse destinations in the world, offering artistic inspiration and sensational shopping opportunities for every kind of wanderer - a bucket-list travel destination.
You don’t have to visit during the famous Fringe Festival or Hogmanay to make the most of Edinburgh. This dynamic destination attracts millions of tourists across all seasons, boasting a truly vibrant atmosphere unmatched by other cities. Famous for being highly walkable, the city centre is easily accessible from the airport thanks to the newly opened tram. The city boasts a truly magnificent focal point that no other destination in the world can rival in Edinburgh Castle. All activity in the city pivots around this magnificent medieval stronghold. The Old Town, described by Lonely Planet as the most gothic city outside of Transylvania, is a photographer’s paradise with its characterful spindly buildings and opulent Reformation era edifices. The New Town, by contrast, offers a cool cosmopolitan vibe, and an amazing array of designer department stores, high street shops and one-off boutiques.
