Scotland’s proud capital city is home to Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyrood House and the Scottish Parliament, all connected by the Royal Mile, which throngs with the many tourists to this beautiful city. Visitors are drawn to the ancient streets of the Old Town and the stately 18th century New Town, recognised together as a World Heritage Site, and the museums, galleries and monuments to be found there.
Events are a key reason for visiting. Book your Edinburgh Festival accommodation well in advance to ensure that you’re at the front of the queue for this three week celebration of music, theatre and dance in August. If you are visiting the Edinburgh Fringe (the world’s largest arts festival) then stay at an Edinburgh city centre B&B or guest house to really get in on the action.
And to start your New Year with a bang, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay celebrations are world famous. Book your Edinburgh hotel or B&B early to make sure you have somewhere to rest your head after the party!
