World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Grassmarket and The Royal Mile. Appreciate the collections at National Museum of Scotland and Royal Yacht Britannia. Step out of Edinburgh to go to North Berwick and see Seacliff Beach, which is approximately 1:05 hours away. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Edinburgh Old Town, enjoy the sand and surf at Portobello Beach, stop by Aquila, and shop like a local with Urbane Art Gallery.

For photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, read Edinburgh trip itinerary builder.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Edinburgh. In January in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 7°C during the day and 1°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
