World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Step out of the city life by going to Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill. Your inner history buff will appreciate Edinburgh Castle and The Real Mary King's Close. There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, steep yourself in history at St Anthony's Chapel, see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip planner.
