World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Take a break from the city and head to Arthur's Seat and The Marshmallow Lady. Visit Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse for their historical value. And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, and explore the world behind art at Urbane Art Gallery.

To find where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Edinburgh trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major aiports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 15°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
