What travelers to Edinburgh are saying

There are good restaurants and wine bars, however, we could not find any top quality Indian, Chinese, Lebanese, restaurants. They may exist, but searches on the web did not highlight any. As usual, Edinburgh was chilly and windy, and whilst it has architecture that is in many cases great most of the external masonry would benefit from cleaning. This would mitigate the dark, blackened and perhaps depressing appearance of some areas of the city

Although Edinburgh is very famous for the Festival in August, I'd recommend visiting in low season when its not so busy and accommodation rates are much lower. There are plenty of outdoor activities such as climbing Arthur's Seat, a walk along the Water of Leith, a visit to the Botanic Gardens and a trip to the beach at Portobello. The state museums and galleries are free to enter, I recommend the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art,

We spent our time at the festival and took in 30+ shows in 5 days. The festival is amazing, wouldn't miss it for the world! Good food at the Guildford Arms and the Odeon restaurant.

It wasn't Edinburgh. This is misleading although our group were fully aware of the location. We visited the Kelpies, Falkirk Wheel and walked along the canal all lovely local places

The city was for the most part clean and tidy staff in shops and restaurants polite and friendly many places of interest both inside and out

Cheapest Time to Stay in Edinburgh

The Scottish capital city of Edinburgh is a major hub of trade and finance, as well as a historical centre of scholarship. There are a large number of historical locations throughout the modern city, all easily accessible to those who book their rooms in Edinburgh hotels through ebookers.

The National Treasure of Medieval Edinburgh

Edinburgh has managed to preserve many of the historical structures built in the city, making it an ideal destination for those interested in architectural styles of the Reformation period. Booking a hotel through ebookers places you within easy reach of one of the best preserved historical areas in Europe. Over 4,500 buildings in the city are listed for structural or historic interest, and the Old Town and New Town areas of the city share a place on the listing of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the Old Town area in the city centre, you can see a great many of Edinburgh's most historic buildings. Dominated by Edinburgh Castle, these buildings stretch through the Old Town area and down the hill on which the castle sits. The area follows a medieval street plan, featuring central squares surrounded by 16th-century buildings. Notable buildings worth visiting include the St. Giles' Cathedral and the Law Courts, along with some of the earliest residential high rises to be built. New Town sits adjacent to the Old Town area and was created as a way to provide living space in the 18th century. The architecture of New Town is just as beautiful as that of Old Town, with Bath House, the Royal Scottish Academy Building and the National Gallery of Scotland all serving as great destinations to visit after checking into your hotel room booked through ebookers.

Festivals and Celebrations Provide Entertaining Diversions

While visiting historic sites can be an enjoyable activity in Edinburgh, there are a large variety of festivals and celebrations occurring throughout the year. The most famous of these is the annual Edinburgh Festival, which begins in July and lasts until September. The festival is actually a series of events that you can attend, including the Edinburgh International Festival, with its theatrical and classical music performances, and the Edinburgh Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world. In addition to visiting the festivals, you can use ebookers to reserve a hotel near Edinburgh Castle, where the Edinburgh Military Tattoo is held annually. During this event, pipers and drummers from Scottish army regiments, who play to a background of exploding fireworks, occupy the Castle Esplanade.

The festival season might be short in Edinburgh, but there are plenty of other things to do throughout the year. Live entertainment is available in the city's many theatre venues, from the acting company at the Royal Lyceum Theatre to the touring shows at the Edinburgh Playhouse. For music, there's Usher Hall, a stage for classical performances, while popular music is generally played at locations such as The Hub and Queen's Hall. There are even a few stages for local and indie bands, including Meadowbank, the Corn Exchange and Murrayfield. With ebookers, you can enjoy it all. Just book your accommodation with one of many Edinburgh hotels, and you'll soon find yourself in the middle of a city that's filled with quality attractions.
