Not only a capital city, Edinburgh is also the leading festival city in the world, home to the phenomenal summer festivals, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Wherever you look, the city buzzes with a sense of excitement all year round.

Packed with medieval tenements, narrow wynds of the Old Town and the sweeping elegance of the Georgian New Town, there’s no question that Edinburgh deserves its reputation as one of the most stunning and enthralling cities in the world.


Edinburgh is a super compact city which makes exploring really easy. You can get around on foot, by bike, by tram or use the extensive bus and railway network, which offers fast and regular service connecting the city with the surrounding towns and villages in the Lothians. There are also several parks & ride services, or you can hail a cab.
