How it works
Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
Edinburgh is a city that seems to have sprouted naturally from the ground, draped elegantly across its hilly landscape overlooking the sea. Razor-thin cobblestone alleys wind between breathtaking Gothic architecture and towering spires, and lamplit streets lined by medieval tenements exist peacefully under the watchful eye of the 900-year-old Edinburgh Castle perched atop an extinct volcano. The best way to tackle an Edinburgh tour is on foot, climbing the Scotsman Steps and strolling past beautiful buildings and bawdy pubs ringing with laughter. In a city with no shortage of Michelin-starred meals, the best restaurants aren’t necessarily high-end – fantastic food can be found scattered throughout the historic center, from humble cheese toasties to haggis, Scotland’s must-try national dish. When you need a break from the bustle, perch yourself on a bench at the Royal Botanic Garden and decide what to do next – the possibilities in Edinburgh truly are endless.
