World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get a sense of the local culture at Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyroodhouse. Visit Real Mary King's Close and St Giles' Cathedral for their historical value. Take a break from Edinburgh with a short trip to The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Seahouses, about 1h 55 min away. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Dalhousie Castle Falconry, steep yourself in history at The Scottish Parliament, learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and get interesting insight from Tours.

For photos, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, use the Edinburgh journey builder site .

In January in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 7°C during the day and 1°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
