Information about flights to Edinburgh
Edinburgh is probably Scotland's most famous, most visited city, and you'll see why as soon as you touch down in the country's beautiful, culture-filled, exciting capital. It's unmistakably Scottish thanks to cockle-warming food served in friendly pubs and upmarket restaurants, charming locals and an incredible array of architecture – including Edinburgh Castle. This famous sight is set on the top of a hill in the city centre, meaning it's easy to find, get to and enjoy as part of a short break or even a day trip.
Take a short trip out of the city to Arthur's Seat. It's a dramatic hill fort within Holyrood Park that's historically interesting and that offers breathtaking views of Edinburgh and the surrounding countryside. If the weather's nice, it's worth packing a picnic to reward yourself at the end of a scramble to the top! For a bit more history, take a tour of the Royal Yacht Britannia, voted the UK's number one attraction in the TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice Awards. This magnificent ship offers a trip back in time and shows how the other half lived on board – complete with royal apartments and royal deck tea room. And it's only a short bus ride from the city centre.
In the city
Head back to the city for a wander around the Old Town, a part of Edinburgh that dates back to medieval times. The narrow streets are packed with atmosphere, old wool shops, original architectural features and monuments and give you a real sense that you've travelled back to simpler times. Just a few minutes' walk from the Old Town is the city centre – a modern and vibrant area complete with every high street shop you can imagine – head for George Street– department stores with boutique concessions and pubs, cafés and delis galore. It's particularly lively during August when the Edinburgh Festival comes to town.
Edinburgh Festival and Hogmanay
If you're planning to visit Edinburgh in August, it's really important to plan ahead as hotels, B and Bs and private flats for rent all get snapped up months in advance. The Edinburgh Festival attracts hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world every year – people who come to discover new acting, musical, artistic and comic talent. Hundreds of venues throw open their doors, charging just a few pounds to see a show and there really is something for everyone. It's rivalled only by Hogmanay, Edinburgh's truly incredible New Year celebrations. Buy a wristband for the official street party – complete with amazing live music and fireworks – or freestyle your night by settling yourself in a bar and heading outside at midnight to see the sky lit up. It's so good that it made its way into the Discovery Channel's Top 25 World Travel Experiences.
