A trip to Edinburgh is incomplete without a visit to the world-famous Edinburgh Castle, a 15-minute drive from the hotel. The castle is home to the Crown Jewels, The Stone of Scone – an ancient symbol of Scotland’s monarchy – and the National War Museum of Scotland. Wander around the historic site and peer out at views across Edinburgh.
Take a one-hour guided tour of Mary King’s Close, an underground Edinburgh attraction beneath the Royal Mile. Learn about Edinburgh’s dark past from the costumed guides and hear gory stories from the close’s residents, including Mary King herself. Not for the faint-hearted!
Don't Go Home Without
Gaze at the contemporary art paintings and sculptures at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern One), a 6-minute drive away. Or, head to the Scottish National Gallery, a 10-minute drive, to admire art from world-renowned artists like Van Gogh, Picasso and Henri Matisse.
Plan your attractions in advance, where possible, to avoid disappointment. Book online for the cheapest tickets and to make sure you’re guaranteed entry on the day. Lots of attractions are within walking distance of each other (and it’s quicker walking at peak times), so pack comfortable shoes for tackling the cobbled hills of the Old Town.
