What to See and Do in Edinburgh

Edinburgh CastleWhy not start your break with a morning visit to Edinburgh Castle, only a 10min walk from The Real Mary King’s Close at the top of the Royal Mile. From there it’s a short walk to Camera Obscura and World of Illusions before continuing down the Royal Mile to discover Our Dynamic Earth. If underground Edinburgh has caught your imagination don’t miss out visiting Gilmerton Cove, a series of passageways and chambers hand-carved from sandstone.

If you enjoy a guided tour to help you explore all Edinburgh has to offer Mercat Tours offer visitors ghostly goings-on as well as City of the Dead Tours.

 

 

And the best way to get around and discover the locations and beauty of the city is on one of the iconic open top bus tours run by Edinburgh Bus Tours and Lothian Buses.
