Edinburgh

Athens of the North

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Bring the kids along to Edinburgh Castle and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Get out of town with these interesting Edinburgh side-trips: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses), Glasgow Tigers Speedway (in Glasgow) and Bamburgh (Ross Back Sands Beach & St Aiden Beach). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, and engage your brain at Dynamic Earth.
