World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Start off your visit on the 19th (Thu): examine the collection at Museum of Childhood, pause for some serene contemplation at Rosslyn Chapel, and then get outside with The Kelpies & The Helix. On the 20th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: explore the historical opulence of Holyrood Park, engage your brain at Dynamic Earth, and then admire the masterpieces at Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

For ratings, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Edinburgh vacation builder.

In October in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 15°C during the day and 6°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
