World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bamburgh Castle and Glamis Castle. Visit Edinburgh Castle and Rosslyn Chapel for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Edinburgh: The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses) and Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury). The adventure continues: explore the galleries of Royal Yacht Britannia, explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse, steep yourself in history at The Real Mary King's Close, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Edinburgh Old Town.
