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: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Paul's & St George's Church (Ps & Gs Church), get curious at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, and take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat.

For photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, use the Edinburgh attractions site .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
