Edinburgh

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like National Museum of Flight and Tantallon Castle. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Holyrood Park and The National Wallace Monument. Step out of Edinburgh with an excursion to The Kelpies & The Helix in Falkirk--about 48 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Scottish National Portrait Gallery, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rosslyn Chapel, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
