Book Flights to Edinburgh

Stepping into Edinburgh feels like stepping back in time. Historical sites are as common as cosy pubs in this Scottish city, from the ancient castle that watches over the winding alleyways below, to the graveyard that inspired the name of Harry Potter's famous archnemesis, Tom Riddle.

Fly to Edinburgh with British Airways and see the capital’s time-stamped sights for yourself. The Royal Mile is the Old Town’s main street, lined with kiltmakers, whisky shops and bagpipe players performing for crowds. At one end sits Edinburgh Castle, where you can learn gruesome facts and enjoy panoramic views over the city. Next door is the ancient Grassmarket area of the city, where a weekly market sells handmade gifts and local produce. If shopping is on your to-do list, head to Princes Street in New Town for a spot of retail therapy, while art buffs can spend hours exploring the galleries. There are three in this area of the city alone. Book a flight to Edinburgh today.
