Best Things To Do in Edinburgh
When you think Edinburgh, you might quickly conjure up images of grassy hills, rowdy pubs, a sea of tartan – but this ancient city has so much more to offer. Take a walk down Old Town's Royal Mile and you'll find yourself face to face with the iconic Edinburgh Castle. Explore the nearby seaside and you're likely to stumble upon the Royal Yacht Britannia. And if you're visiting Holyroodhouse Palace, you might suddenly fancy a wander up the adjacent Arthur's Seat or Calton Hill for some magnificent Scottish views. And come festival season in August, expect the city to be alive with libations as Edinburgh celebrates the beloved annual Military Tatto, Fringe Festival and the Edinburgh Festival.How we rank Things to Do.
