Tourist Information Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of Scotland's most exciting, vibrant cities offering many things to see and do. From its tiny, winding streets to its dramatic volcanic scenery, Edinburgh really captures the best of what a city has to offer. Throughout the year Edinburgh is a hive of activity; however the city's busiest times are undoubtedly August, when people flood in for the Festivals, and the New Year period, when both residents and visitors alike hit the streets for the Hogmanay celebrations.

The Old Town and New Town were designated a World Heritage Site in 1995. The Old Town includes the Castle, the Royal Palace of Holyrood House, St. Giles Cathedral and the old and new Scottish Parliaments. The New Town was constructed to a single architectural plan between 1750 and 1820.

The Scottish capital has come a long way from the days of "Auld Reekie", as it was affectionately known, to be one of the world's most influential cities. Split between Old Town, New Town and the port of Leith, Edinburgh is well worth a visit.
