Escape to vibrant Edinburgh, where history and modernity meet in a cosmopolitan city set against the striking landscape of Scotland. Originally Scotland’s defensive fortress for hundreds of years with its position presiding over the North Sea, Edinburgh is now a must-see destination. Visit its namesake Edinburgh Castle, home to the 12th-century St. Margaret’s Chapel, and wander the cobblestone streets that lead to fantastic dining, rambunctious taverns and exciting shopping.
A beautiful and cultured city, you will find a wealth of things to do in Edinburgh. Discover nearby historic attractions like the shops along Princes Street, the National Museum of Scotland or the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre, both within walking distance of the hotel. Start your Royal Mile journey at Edinburgh Castle and take in the dramatic panorama over Scotland’s capital. From there, walk down the cobbled street past the St. Giles Cathedral, John Knox’s House and shops selling Scottish crafts and tartan goods. At the end of the Mile, you’ll find a uniquely Scottish marriage of old and new power, where Holyrood Palace sits opposite the Scottish Parliament. After a day spent sightseeing, Edinburgh at night is not to be missed. Take in a show at the Edinburgh Playhouse, enjoy a meal at one of Edinburgh’s Michelin-starred restaurants or dance the night away in the lively clubs on George Street or the Cowgate.
