Get some cultural insight at Edinburgh Castle and National Museum of Scotland. You'll explore and learn at Royal Yacht Britannia and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, take a stroll through Edinburgh Old Town, explore the historical opulence of Palace of Holyroodhouse, and make a trip to The Royal Mile.
