On the Royal Mile, you can marvel at St Giles' Cathedral, otherwise known as the High Kirk of Edinburgh, with its crown-shaped steeple. The nearby Princes Street Gardens is a popular spot to take a break from exploring the city's attractions and also houses the Scott Monument, a memorial to author Sir Walter Scott. Brave the narrow spiral staircase of the gothic spire for stunning Old Town views.
Take advantage of Edinburgh's thriving cultural life and catch a show. The iconic Traverse Theatre puts on contemporary plays and has a buzzing bar. You can enjoy opera, Shakespeare or a big-budget musical at the huge Festival Theatre in Edinburgh's Old Town. If you're in the mood for a laugh, you can see stand-up comedians perform nightly at The Stand comedy club.
Don't Go Home Without
You can take in masterpieces from artists such as Raphael, Vermeer and Van Gogh at the Scottish National Gallery, less than three miles from the hotel in central Edinburgh. Or check out the thousands of contemporary paintings, sculptures, videos and installations at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, 20 minutes' drive from the hotel.
Popular culture fans might want to visit the grave of Thomas Riddle in Greyfriars Kirkyard. Local lore has it that the spot inspired author J.K. Rowling's evil Tom Riddle character in the Harry Potter series - she wrote much of the first book in a nearby café. Ghost hunters should check out Mary King's Close, an ancient street under the Old Town that has long been said to be haunted.
