World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Discovery Point and Grace Darling Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at Bamburgh Castle and St Andrews Links. Explore Edinburgh's surroundings by going to Berwick upon Tweed (Cocklawburn Beach & Chain Bridge Honey Farm), Bamburgh (Bamburgh Beach & St Aiden Beach) and St Andrews West Sands Beach (in St. Andrews). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, examine the collection at Surgeons' Hall Museums, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rosslyn Chapel, and contemplate the long history of Cragside House and Gardens.

To see other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh route planner.

In December in Edinburgh, expect temperatures between 9°C during the day and 2°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
