World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bamburgh Castle and Holyrood Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Coldingham Sands (in Coldingham), Rosslyn Chapel (in Roslin) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). The adventure continues: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, browse the exhibits of Royal Yacht Britannia, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral, and steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close.
