About Edinburgh


Walking through Edinburgh is like stepping into another era. The dark, twisting alleys of the Old Town lead to creaky, whisky-soaked taverns that have remained unchanged for centuries. Take a ghost tour through medieval Greyfriars Kirkyard; watch out for the shadows that leap from behind the tombstones! In the light of day, climb up to the more welcoming Edinburgh Castle and look out over the spires and rooftops to the stout crest of Arthur’s Seat. Enjoy a walk down the Royal Mile in the Old Town along its rain-slicked pavestones; you may hear shrieking bagpipes in the background.

Each year Edinburgh hosts the biggest New Year’s street party in the world.

Visit during the Edinburgh Festival season at least once in your lifetime. The cavalcade of performers who fill the street breathe new life into the old stones of the city.

There is an entire underground city beneath the Old Town – a network of passages where people once lived and worked.

About Edinburgh

The local festival may only last for a couple of weeks every August, but all year round the Scottish capital will put a spring in your step and a naughty glint in your eye.

Robert Louis Stevenson described the town of his birth as ‘this dream in masonry and rock’. Crammed between a volcano and the ocean, Edinburgh is just as gorgeous a century or so on. From the atmospheric passageways of the medieval Old Town - to the elegant Georgian streets of the New Town, Scotland’s capital wears its history on its sleeve. With more than a hundred public parks, and more trees per person than any city in the UK, there’s plenty of breathing space too. And, in spite of the infamously bad weather, locals congregate outside to drink beer, kick a ball around, or practice their circus skills.

For Edinburgh is a city of performers, raconteurs and extroverts. Thanks to the huge popularity of the annual arts festival – and its more raucous cousin, the Fringe – the city draws comedians, clowns, and actors from all over the world, and boasts some of the best live music and cabaret venues on the planet.

As befits a student town, you’re more likely to start the night off in a higgledy-piggledy boozer than in a fancy wine bar. After-hours the scene moves (literally) underground. Dance to electro-trance in the subterranean depths of the Liquid Room or connect with your inner freak in the caves of Cabaret Voltaire. Come morning, a bracing walk up Arthur’s Seat is the best way to counteract the after-effects of a ‘wee dram’ or two. Just beware of that other local speciality: the deepfried Mars bar. Even William Wallace would think twice before taking one of those bad boys on!

With looks, wit, and wicked charm to spare, it’s no wonder that Edinburgh is a city that visitors and locals alike fall hard for. Just don’t come looking for a detox!
