World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Royal Yacht Britannia and Real Mary King's Close. Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse. There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Scotland, pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, and get curious at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.
