World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Tue): examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, then explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, then get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, and finally engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, then contemplate the long history of Real Mary King's Close, then make a trip to The Royal Mile, and finally step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle.

For ratings and other tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh online trip itinerary maker .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In December in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 9°C during the day and 2°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
