It’s the peak of summer! There are loads of exciting things to do in Edinburgh in July 2022, from climbing one of Edinburgh’s hills to a unique tour and gin tasting experience.
Calton Hill is one of Edinburgh’s seven hills and a favourite of locals and tourists. It has incredible views of the city’s landmarks and is located only a short walk from Princes Street. The National Monument, inspired by the Parthenon in Athens, is one of the historic monuments on the hilltop. The uncompleted monument was built to commemorate Scottish servicemen who died during the Napoleonic Wars. The Nelson Monument and City Observatory are also at the top of Calton Hill.
The experience has travelled the world and is in Edinburgh for a limited time only, closing 17th July. Venture into the world of Van Gogh’s greatest works, including the sunflower room that you have likely seen all over Instagram.
