World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. You'll explore and learn at National Museum of Scotland and Royal Yacht Britannia. And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, tour the pleasant surroundings at Portobello Beach, make a trip to The Real Mary King's Close, and contemplate the long history of Georgian House.

For where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Edinburgh trip itinerary builder.

Expect a daytime high around 15°C in October, and nighttime lows around 6°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
