You’ve just spent some time in the city’s most famous attraction, Edinburgh Castle – now it’s time to meet up with a local host and see what Edinburghers get up to in Auld Reekie. You’ll be guided from the Castle through the charming Old Town, a historic district that’s home to many of the city’s top entertainment spots, from traditional Scottish restaurants to modern museums (and many quaint, cobbled streets that inspired Harry Potter). You could grab a humble cheese toastie and a moment of peace away from the crowds at Dunbar’s Close, a 17th-century-style secret garden, then stroll slowly up a winding trail to Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano and a tranquil oasis far from the crowds.
In the heart of Scotland’s storybook capital, you’ll explore the streets surrounding the city’s centerpiece, Edinburgh Castle – the mighty 900-year-old fortress perched atop Castle Rock and overlooking the city below. Like the hero of your own historic romance (or a Hogwarts student, if that’s more your style), amble along razor-thin cobblestone alleys through the perfectly preserved Old Town, past beautiful Gothic architecture and towering spires. Explore the iconic Royal Mile, a historic hub lined with breathtaking buildings, traditional pubs, and fantastic restaurants as you make your way two miles east to the summit of Arthur’s Seat – a jagged hill offering the most stunning views of Edinburgh’s sprawling, twinkling cityscape.
