Edinburgh is Scotland’s compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Colton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials. You can’t come to Edinburgh without visiting the city’s royal attractions. Buy the Royal Edinburgh Ticket and discover both Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyrood house. To visit Edinburgh Castle, hop off at Johnston Terrace to climb Castle hill and explore its many delights. There are two separate museums, the famous One O’Clock Gun, the Great Hall, the Royal Palace, the Stone of Destiny and more! Rejoin the City Sightseeing tour and stay on the bus until you reach the Palace of Holyrood house, which has been the main residence of the Kings and Queens of Scotland for nearly five hundred years. The current Queen spends one week there every summer and the Palace is open to the public, though don’t expect to see the Queen wandering about as it closes when she’s there! For something a little different, our last recommendation is that you hop off at Lawn market to visit the Camera Obscura, which has been enthralling both locals and visitors since Queen Victoria was on the throne. Here you’ll get a completely unique view of the city and get to enjoy five floors of optical illusions!
