World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Direct Pets and The Found Gallery. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse. Venture out of the city with trips to Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Kinsman-Blake Gallery (in Kelso). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia and look for gifts at Miss Katie Cupcake.

For ratings, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh day trip planner .

In April, daily temperatures in Edinburgh can reach 13°C, while at night they dip to 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
