Edinburgh Tourism: Best of Edinburgh

A city jam-packed with culture going on around the clock
Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh is renowned for its heritage, culture, and festivals. Take a long walk around the centre to explore the World Heritage Sites of the Old Town and New Town, as well as all the area’s museums and galleries. Pause to fortify yourself with tea and scones at the city’s charming tea rooms or duck into a traditional pub. Then head out to take in one of Edinburgh’s many events—including the famous summer festivals of culture, or the Winter Festivals of music, light, and ceilidhs.
