Edinburgh is steeped in history – a stroll along the atmospheric Old Town’s cobbled streets feels like taking a step back in time. The city’s most famous historic sight, Edinburgh Castle, dates back to the 12th Century. Walk down the Royal Mile connecting the castle to the grand Holyrood Palace, which is surrounded by impressive gardens, before visiting St Giles Cathedral and Greyfriars Kirk. Next, explore the upmarket New Town, separated from the Old Town by Princess Gate Gardens, and discover the Royal Yacht Britannia moored at the Port of Leith.
Edinburgh is a fantastic foodie destination, with more restaurants per head than any other city in the UK. Helmed by namesake chef Tom Kitchin, award-winning The Kitchin is a Michelin-starred venue serving nature-to-plate cuisine near the Port of Leith. In the Old Town, try the seafood platter at Ondine, which has a Champagne and oyster bar; or tuck into Angus beef steak tartar at the famous Witchery by the Castle, which features elaborate baroque interiors.
Just a few minutes from central Edinburgh, visitors can set foot on the Scottish Highlands at Holyrood Park – a former hunting ground and playground for Scotland’s aristocracy. This 650-acre expanse spans three lochs and is home to the summit of Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano that is the park’s highest point.
August sees the city play host to the world’s largest arts and cultural festival – Edinburgh Fringe. Each night during festival season, visitors can watch the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, a spectacular show featuring performers and fireworks. Another lively time to visit is during the Edinburgh Hogmanay, a spectacular New Year’s celebration featuring traditional Scottish music, during which thousands march the streets holding fire-lit torches.
