By using around 300 photos and 20,000 words EDINBURGH’S BEST is a travel guide that helps you make the most of your city break. In it you’ll find detailed and practical information on key SIGHTS, ACTIVITIES and INTERESTS and be pointed in the right direction by several key ITINERARIES and WALKS. Then there are suggestions of where you might EAT, DRINK and find ENTERTAINMENT; and since we are fully-independent our recommendations are not adverts!

INTRODUCING EDINBURGH

Scotland’s capital is one of Europe’s jewels and for many needs little introduction. Its jumbled medieval streets are fantastic to explore, and its August festival season a key date in the global calendar. This sees the city turn itself inside-out to simultaneously accommodate four festivals including the Fringe, the world’s largest performing arts event, and the Tattoo, a epic spectacle of military marching and bands held in the forecourt of Edinburgh's magnificent castle.

But really Edinburgh is a city of great variety, with a little of everything from urban buzz to rural corners; from cosmopolitan variety to cosy relaxing pubs. Its major museums and many historic sights provide plenty of things to do, while a glut of cafes and restaurants offer a great selection of places to unwind; then a string of venues and clubs stay open into the small hours.
