World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh is known for historic sites, museums, nature, nightlife, and childrens museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at Royal Yacht Britannia, don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile, learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

To find traveler tips, maps, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh visit planner .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
