Get a sense of the local culture at Edinburgh Castle and Royal Yacht Britannia. Visiting The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Calton Hill will get you outdoors.

And it doesn't end there: learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, walk around Holyrood Park, pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral, and explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse.
