World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Get a sense of the local culture at Edinburgh Old Town and National Museum of Scotland. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like The Royal Mile and Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Edinburgh: Stirling Castle (in Stirling) and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (in Glasgow). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, contemplate the long history of The Real Mary King's Close, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Arthur's Seat, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Giles' Cathedral.

For where to stay, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh trip itinerary maker.
