World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Let the collections at Royal Yacht Britannia and National Museum of Scotland capture your imagination. Do your shopping at The Glasgow School of Art and R Carter & Sons. Change things up with these side-trips from Edinburgh: Bamburgh Castle (in Bamburgh), The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (in Seahouses) and North Berwick (Scottish Seabird Centre & Seacliff Beach). There's much more to do: sample the fine beverages at Edinburgh Gin Distillery, steep yourself in history at Grassmarket, explore the wide array of goods at Jenners, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Giles' Cathedral.

To see photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Edinburgh online travel planner .

January in Edinburgh sees daily highs of 7°C and lows of 1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
