World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nature, nightlife, and childrens museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, steep yourself in history at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.

For maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, read Edinburgh travel planner.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Edinburgh. In December, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to go by car back home.
