Edinburgh. A world class destination,
Edinburgh is a truly world-class city that welcomes over 4 million visitors per year, an international creative and cultural centre. It is a city for everyone – the historic old town where a wander through the winding old cobbled streets, closes and squares can really take you back in time. Start at the Castle at the top of the Royal Mile and work your way to the bottom and Holyrood Palace for some fabulous views and interesting shops and attractions. Or there is the New Town- so called but actually not so new! With its’ beautifully ordered Georgian squares, crescents and streets. There are plenty open spaces too – Arthurs seat and Holyrood Park is our own ‘mountain’ in the city and climb to the top the views will take your breath away.
Edinburgh also has some of the best and most varied eating and drinking offers of anywhere in the Uk – from Michelin starred restaurants to boutique cafes – there is something for everyone and every budget.
In the summer months Edinburgh takes on a new look when we welcome a huge influx of visitors to the summer festivals, the Film festival, book festival, international festival, fringe festival – there are many to choose from and they bring the city alive with an explosion of colour and creative interest.
