World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Room Escape Games and Rosslyn Chapel. Next up on the itinerary: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town, and engage your brain at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions.

To find other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Edinburgh day trip site .

In January, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
