Why Go on a Tour of Edinburgh

Have you visited Edinburgh yet? Well, here is your chance. Scotland's capital, located in its Central Belt, is a place rich in history and cultural heritage, as well as outstanding tourist attractions. Also famous for its wide range of festivals (from film, art and music to science and books) it is yet another city full of action and lively people.

Having more restaurants per head than any other city in the UK, Edinburgh is a real treat for foodies, craving for new experiences to satisfy their taste buds. And the city actually has it all! However, it is crucial to try the local delicacies, such as haggis and shortbread while in the area, and sample some high quality Scottish whisky after that.

A hunt for a glass of this beverage shouldn't take too long, since the place is flourishing with pubs and bustling nightlife. After actively exploring the city's modern-day lifestyle, it is important to get to know its history as well.

Including the renowned Castle in your Edinburgh tour is not enough, as there are many more things to see, such as the medieval Old Town and the Georgian New Town, which are even included in list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Holyrood Palace on the Royal Mile is also worth your attention, along with multiple cathedrals, including the St Giles' Cathedral, and the High Kirk of Edinburgh.

Packed with historical sites and beautiful nature, the city was actually the movie set for such films as "The Da Vinci Code" and "The Illusionist". Another thing to add to your Edinburgh itinerary is a wide range of galleries and museums.

Make sure to pay a visit to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Museum of Scotland which are just a few of the most important ones in Britain and both located in the capital.
