Edinburgh is a charming city full of architecture and history to delight culture vultures who enjoy sightseeing, discovering the history of a city through local guides, and admiring the breathtaking views.
If you're a Royalist you'll be thrilled to know that you will be able to see not 1, but 2 places where the Royal Family have walked. The first is the famous Holyrood House Palace, the official Scottish residence of The Queen that is used primarily for state occasions. The 2nd is the Royal Brittania Yacht which the Queen and Prince Philip, along with the children, called home when sailing around the world.
Known as being Europe's most haunted city so it's no wonder that Edinburgh's top attractions focus on ghost stories and recounting the grisly past of this historical city. Journey below The Royal Mile to discover Mary King's Close that lays below the city and learn why and how it's buried beneath the city. Get thrills and frights at Edinburgh Dungeon and take a midnight ride on a spooky black bus. Despite all the talk of ghosts, murders, and witches it's not all spooky because this is the city where JK Rowling was inspired for characters and places in the Harry Potter books - See what inspired Digaon Alley and where the inspiration for Hogwarts came from on a walking tour.
