Holiday in Edinburgh

Presentation of Edinburgh

Scotland’s beautiful, romantic capital city lures travellers with its stunning setting. Nestled between mountains and crags, it is a place of heady, wonderful architecture, from medieval tenements and stepped alleys to the magnificence of the castle and elegance of the New Town. This is a compact city that invites exploration, with historic sites and monuments around every corner and always a welcoming pub or cosy cafe to retreat to. Climb the volcanic peak of Arthur’s Seat or Carlton Hill with its classical monuments for incredible panoramic views. At Edinburgh Castle, which dates from the 13th century, you can discover Scotland’s royal heritage, and in the city, within an easy walk of each other, is an amazing array of museums, galleries, parks and gardens. Evenings are filled with the sound of live music. For flight and hotel Edinburgh deals, look no further.

Things to know before visiting Edinburgh

If you’re planning a holiday to Edinburgh via a flight from London to Edinburgh or a flight from Manchester to Edinburgh, you’ll probably fly into Edinburgh Airport, located just to the west of the city, in the Ingliston area. It’s only about eight miles from the airport to the city centre and there are excellent links via express bus, tram or taxi to make things easy once you touch the ground. You can pre-book tickets or simply buy them when you arrive, and Edinburgh Airport, like the city itself, is small and easy to navigate. You can also find car hire companies in the terminal building for flexibility to venture further afield from the city centre. Be inspired by our low-cost holidays to Scotland’s amazing capital and start planning your getaway.

What to see in Edinburgh?

There is so much to see and discover on a holiday to Edinburgh. You could start by spending a morning, or a day, discovering Edinburgh Castle – check out the bronze statues of legends William Wallace and Robert the Bruce, the magnificent Royal Apartments, the Crown Jewels and the Stone of Destiny, and the National War Museum. Arthur’s Seat in Holyrood Park, with amazing sweeping views, is a wonderful place to escape the city and gain a different perspective.

Five top galleries and museums in Edinburgh are:

  • The Scottish National Gallery.
  • The Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
  • The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
  • The Museum of Scotland.
  • The Museum of Edinburgh.

The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is a lovely walk along the Water of Leith, and together, the whole host of museums tells the story of Edinburgh’s history, culture and people. For some time out to relax in beautiful surroundings and discover glasshouses filled with lush tropical plants, don’t miss the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Wander the Royal Mile with its quirky shops and explore the monuments of Carlton Hill. With our flight and hotel deals, you can visit all these attractions and more.

What to do in Edinburgh?

A holiday to Edinburgh gives you the opportunity to discover so much about Scotland’s capital and the country itself. A walk down the Royal Mile from Holyrood House to Edinburgh Castle takes you right into the heart of this majestic city. On the way, check out the 16th-century Palace of Holyrood House and travel back to the beginning of time at Dynamic Earth, or take in the Scottish Parliament building and Canongate Kirk. Gain a different, unique view again at Camera Obscura, Edinburgh’s museum of optical illusions. The city also has a hidden, underground side – at the Real Mary King’s Close, you can discover the incredible array of old underground alleyways via an entertaining tour led by an actor in 17th-century peasant mode. Compare holidays with us to get your trip started.

What to visit around Edinburgh?

With a flight and hotel to Edinburgh, you can explore not only the city but also the beautiful countryside and picturesque towns beyond. The Pentland Hills just to the south are an exhilarating open green space, and Roslin Glen, setting for the Da Vinci Code, is an enchanting place for woodland walks. Alternatively, you could visit the pretty seaside town of North Berwick for wildlife and bird watching, or the gorgeous gardens of Dawyck, an extension of the Botanic Garden in Edinburgh itself. Look at our holiday packages today.

What to eat in Edinburgh

Edinburgh has some amazing food. Traditional dishes, of course, include haggis, neeps and tatties, and this meal can be found at pubs and restaurants throughout the city. More recent traditions include deep-fried Mars Bars, a surprisingly tasty delicacy! At the other end of respectability, there is no end of elegant institutions serving afternoon tea – Colonnades at The Signet Library is undoubtedly one of the best. Whatever your taste buds fancy, you can be sure to find it on a holiday to Edinburgh. Browse our range of holiday packages to whet your appetite.
