Discover our romantic Edinburgh hotels in the beating heart of this historic city.
Marvel at the medieval fortress of Edinburgh Castle as you wander up the Royal Mile, with its Reformation buildings, from the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Visit the National Museums and Galleries of Scotland spread out across the City. Follow in the footsteps of Royalty with a tour of the decks of the Royal Yacht Britannia. Or shop ’til you drop on Princes Street and take home some of the finest tartan in Scotland. Why not stay for one of Edinburgh’s international festivals, or find out why it’s the world’s first UNESCO City of Literature with a literary pub tour?
Edinburgh. UNESCO World Heritage Site. Birthplace of Sean Connery. A city like no other. World-famous festivals rub shoulders with world-class visitor attractions ensuring that there is no shortage of things to see and do.
With over 4,500 listed buildings, Edinburgh’s painstakingly preserved Old Town and neoclassical New Town, there are few cities in the world that can boast the wealth of historical attractions that the cosmopolitan capital of Scotland offers. City centre highlights include Robert Adam’s Georgian House and the neo-Gothic St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral. Not far away is Scotland’s finest stately home, Hopetoun House; the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, Linlithgow Palace; and late-Gothic Rosslyn Chapel, featured in the works of Sir Walter Scott.
Sound exhausting? Then just relax and soak up the cityscape from the top of the iconic extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat.
