With so many iconic attractions in one place, you'll never have a dull moment in Edinburgh! First things first, make sure to take some selfies out the front of Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat. When you've finished with those, you'll still have St. Giles' Cathedral and Palace of Holyroodhouse to visit!
You're going to find yourself surrounded by interesting things to see and do, like the University of Edinburgh and the Heriot Watt University. If you're eager to make the most of your time here, also swing by the Edinburgh Zoo and the National Museum of Scotland.
Want to while away a few hours in a lush, green oasis? Take a trip to Princes Street Gardens. There's a great range of things to keep you busy in this destination. You don't need to be a grave hunter to enjoy a walk around Greyfriars Kirk. Why not check if there's a tour on and listen to some of the tales behind this captivating graveyard? Still got time to spare? The intimacy and artistry of live theatre is difficult to deny. Book your tickets for a show at Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre and experience its magic and charm for yourself!
A holiday is a great time to slow down, recharge and unwind. It's also the ideal time to try new things!

See what delicious treats await you at The Balmoral Hotel (1 Princes Street) or the Destiny Scotland - George IV Apartments (23 George IV Bridge). Alternatively, the Lyncliff Hotel (4 Windsor Street) and the Angel's Share Hotel (7-11 Hope Street) are a couple of properties worth looking into if you're travelling on the cheap.
There's nothing as satisfying as landing at Edinburgh Airport (EDI) after being confined in a cramped cabin for hours. When you've collected your baggage from the carousel and stretched your legs, you'll find yourself around 7 miles from Edinburgh's downtown area.
