World famous delightful Scottish historic city
Edinburgh Tours with Great British Trips
Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and combines everything you would want in a historic city from its famous castle, royal palace, narrow medieval streets and Georgian squares to a dynamic modern dimension that includes international festivals, cutting edge arts, trendy bars and enticing restaurants all amidst a cosmopolitan environment but with a noticeably Scottish flavour. The city centre has two distinct parts. The New Town to the north has Princes Street the main shopping street, while the Old Town south and east of castle ridge is brimming with history as you explore the atmospheric cobbled streets and alleys. <em>Please note, unless you plan to visit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival or Military Tattoo, we highly recommend avoiding Edinburgh in August if possible</em>
