World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Fri): see the interesting displays at National Museum of Scotland, then take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, then examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, and finally engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. On the 21st (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and finally don't miss a visit to Real Mary King's Close.
