City breaks in Edinburgh

Explore Edinburgh’s rich and varied history and soak up the culture on a weekend break. Visit the dramatic castle sitting high above the city. Or go shopping on Princes Street before dining out in Edinburgh’s world-famous restaurants.

Visit during the exciting summer period, when festival time takes over in August. See a show or two and absorb the inimitable atmosphere – whether its comedy or drama, they’ll be something for you. Or if you arrive in winter, walk up to Arthur’s Seat in the crisp, clear air and then warm up in a pub with an open fire. Don’t miss the brilliant museums and galleries, like the beautifully gothic Scottish National Portrait Gallery. Stay at one of our carefully selected hotels in Edinburgh, we have something to suit all budgets.

Edinburgh Castle

The highlight of any visit – Edinburgh Castle dominates the city, set high atop the volcanic Castle Rock. Immerse yourself in its history and traditions but don’t be frightened by the one o’clock gun salute fired daily (except Sunday) since 1861. Don’t miss the Stone of Destiny, Crown Jewels or Prisons beneath the Great Hall. I love to take a pot of tea here in the Tea Rooms, along with dainty sandwiches and homemade scones. Move on down the Royal Mile from here, past traditional tartan souvenir shops, to the Scottish Parliament building and the Palace of Holyroodhouse – the official residence of the Queen when she's in Scotland. Book a Royal Edinburgh tour to see more.

Scotch Whisky Experience

Also on the Royal Mile, and great fun, is the Scotch Whisky Experience. All tours start with a swirling, bubbling barrel ride through a replica distillery and before you know it you've become part of the whisky making process. You’ll see the world’s largest whisky collection and of course have time to sample a ‘wee dram’. Guaranteed you’ll leave happier than when you went in.

Royal Yacht Britannia (and some shopping)

There’s always time for some retail therapy – soak up the atmosphere along Princes Street first and then use your bus ticket to take a 25-minute ride out to Leith Waterfront and the Ocean Point Shopping Centre. Moored alongside is the Royal Yacht Britannia, where an audio tour provides a glimpse into the private lives of the Royal family. Pose for a photo wearing a Royal Navy cap in the Petty Officers bar, the ‘Verge Inn’. Take afternoon tea on board, in the Royal Deck Tea room, what a lovely treat.

Arthur's Seat

Arthur's Seat

Board the bus back to the city and get off at either Calton Hill, easily identified by the Athenian acropolis, or Arthur's Seat – an extinct volcano. Both vantage points offer spectacular views of the city and surrounding Forth river estuary and sea beyond. A perfect spot to catch a sunset too.

Walking Tours of Witches and Ghosts

Edinburgh has a dark and violent history – 100s of so-called witches were burnt or hanged in the city. Take the Ghost Bus Tour around the old town streets on an original 1960s Routemaster Bus, where a team of actors will try their best to give you the chills. Great fun, but be warned – a bit scary. At the end of this fascinating day it’s time for warming food and drink in the Witchery Restaurant, in the shadow of the Castle – I loved it. Or for something more relaxed try one of the many atmospheric old pubs. Just ask Adam the way.
