Holidays in Edinburgh

The population of this city is 440,000.

Edinburgh is, as you surely already know, famous for Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Yacht Britannia. Arthur's Seat and St. Giles' Cathedral are just as amazing.

A visit to Camera Obscura and World of Illusions or Edinburgh International Climbing Arena Ratho is a fantastic opportunity for a bit of family bonding. Are the little ones still bouncing off the walls? Keep the adventure going with a trip to Butterfly and Insect World and East Links Family Park.

A couple of animal snaps will certainly add some intrigue to your holiday album! Take the whole family to see, learn about and photograph the collection of intriguing wildlife at the Edinburgh Zoo and the Five Sisters Zoo. Scottish Owl Centre is another impressive attraction which teaches visitors about the importance of animal care and conservation.

Whether you're curious about local plant species or just want to take some time to explore the many pathways, you'll enjoy your time at the Royal Botanic Garden and the Dunbar’s Close Garden.

Remember those blissful childhood days of stretching out on the grass watching clouds pass by? Recapture that feeling at Princes Street Gardens and Calton Hill. Alternatively, spend the day outdoors at Holyrood Park or The Meadows.

Make sure you call in at Preston Mill & Phantassie Doocot Mill or Edinburgh Visit Scotland Information Centre. Their helpful, expert staff can offer you tips, advice and inspiration to get the most out of your stay.

You can't go past a day by the seaside. You're spoilt for choice around here, with Portobello Beach and Longniddry Bents two of the best places to put your toes in the water. Yellowcraigs and Tyninghame Beach are also popular hangouts for many travellers.

Edinburgh features a range of natural reserves, such as North Berwick Harbour and Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve. Two additional areas to have a look at are North Berwick Law and Morrisons Haven.

Looking for unique displays? Head straight to the National Museum of Scotland and the National Gallery of Scotland. Don't forget to enquire about guided tours. The Our Dynamic Earth and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art are also worthwhile alternatives.

Set off on a voyage through the seven seas at the Trinity House, a valuable repository of the region's maritime past.

You don't have to be an explorer to appreciate all of the amazing wonders of the natural world, particularly when you've got the Surgeon's Hall. This place is brimming with fascinating specimens and interesting models.

With such a wide range of terrific art exhibitions to admire, you might need a slight push in the right direction. We recommend picking up a coffee and heading straight for the Fruitmarket Gallery or the Talbot Rice Gallery. The City Art Centre and the Hanover Fine Arts Gallery are not to be missed either.

Learn all about the influence that Edinburgh's past events and characters had on the country, and sometimes the world, at the Newhaven Heritage Museum and the People's Story Museum. The Annet House Museum and the Prestongrange Museum are also worth a peek for an even greater insight into the past.

Would you like to discover a few history-filled sights? An outing to Greyfriars Kirk or the University of Edinburgh offer a fascinating glimpse into Edinburgh's days of old. If you're not in a rush, the Heriot Watt University and Real Mary King's Close should also be on your list.

Nungate Bridge is a timeless fixture in the city. While local residents may seem to take it for granted, most travellers come away impressed by this physical memory of of a different time.

Learn more about the important residents who have been able to call Palace of Holyroodhouse and Linlithgow Palace home. Ask about tours of these exquisite residences if you'd like to see the details up close.

For a magical trip back in time, look up and gaze at the enchanting profile of Craigmillar Castle and Blackness Castle. If you'd like to explore more of these fascinating cultural structures, why not take a look at Dirleton Castle and Hawthornden Castle too?

Whether you're spiritual or not, places of prayer like Rosslyn Chapel and St Mary's Church are sure to be among the most peaceful and uplifting sights you'll come across in your travels. If you want to explore more, continue your pilgrimage at St. Michael's Parish Church and St. Mary's Episcopal Cathederal.

They're unlikely to be on the cover of any travel magazines, but Greyfriar's Bobby and the National Library of Scotland are still well worth a visit. There's also plenty to keep you occupied at the Glenkinchie Distillery and Omni Centre Edinburgh.
