    What to do in Edinburgh?

    1. Explore the medieval Old Town. Visit the Royal Mile, a mile-long street lined with traditional shops, pubs and establishments that are great for browsing. Located in the heart of the city, it’s great to explore on foot to get a feel for the capital.
    2. Visit Edinburgh Castle. Situated above the city and dominating the skyline, the site was used as a royal residence and dates from before the 12th century – some of the current buildings house museums and information exhibitions that attract over 2 million visitors a year.
    3. Get outdoors. Scotland has some incredible wildlife and scenery that is just waiting to be discovered. Arthur’s Seat, the main peak in Holyrood Park, has some great views and reaching the top feels like a true achievement. Edinburgh Botanical Gardens are also a great option if you’d rather stay central.
    4. Catch a play. Edinburgh has a great theatre scene and with venues like the King’s Theatre and the Edinburgh Playhouse, you’ll be spoilt for choice, no matter if you’re into musicals, romance, comedy or serious drama.
    5. Go on a ghost tour. Did you know that Edinburgh is considered one of the most haunted cities of the UK? You will find many ghost walks or haunted tours advertised on the Royal Mile. A guide will tell you all about Edinburgh’s paranormal citizens while you walk through dark alleyways and winding streets.
    6. Take a Harry Potter tour. This international franchise owes a lot to Edinburgh, as JK Rowling wrote the series in the city and it inspired a lot of the story and settings.
    7. Brush up on your history. The Edinburgh Dungeons are a fun and interactive way of getting to know about the city’s past, whilst museums such as the National Museum of Scotland give an insight into the natural world, science and technology.
