World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Take a break from Edinburgh with a short trip to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, about 1:55 hours away. The adventure continues: take in the awesome beauty at Arthur's Seat, wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town, learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and see the interesting displays at Royal Yacht Britannia.

To see ratings, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. Expect a daytime high around 13°C in April, and nighttime lows around 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to go by car back home.
