World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Kielder Observatory and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Edinburgh Castle, explore the striking landscape at Arthur's Seat, examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, and get a new perspective on nature at National Museum of Scotland.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, use the Edinburgh tour planner.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 7°C in January, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
