Why Visit Edinburgh – City Centre ?
Arguably the most majestic city in the whole of the UK, Scotland’s capital boasts a blend of splendid architecture, thrilling history, top attractions and genteel charm. Walk the famous Royal Mile in the Old Town, the epicentre of the city that begins at the Palace of Holyroodhouse and ends at Edinburgh Castle.
Edinburgh counts approximately 483,000 residents and is considered an ideal holiday destination by millions of tourists worldwide. This city has gradually made a name for itself due to its buoyant economy based mostly on banking and insurance, but also due to its progress in engineering, medicine, Scots law and science.
Nonetheless, visitors are usually focused on less practical aspects and tend to fall in love at first sight with Edinburgh’s famous historical buildings, such as Holyrood Palace, the Canongate Kirk, Greyfriars Kirk or St. Giles’ Cathedral. You should also know that Edinburgh’s New Town and Old Town are listed together as a breath-taking UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Those who are looking forward to benefitting from an interactive history lesson can start by contemplating these marvellous historical sites. From the beautifully elegant Georgian New Town to the history-packed medieval tenements found in Old Town, Edinburgh is considered to be one of the most compelling and beautiful cities on Earth.
The city centre is easy to navigate by bus or tram but the best way to get to know Edinburgh is on foot. There are mysterious courtyards, picturesque views, secret gardens and amazing architectural feats. The city is becoming very cosmopolitan with five Michelin-starred restaurants, vibrant nightlife, growing cafe culture, a burgeoning arts scene and budget friendly places to stay or four and five-star luxury accommodations.
Besides to visiting the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle you can also visit the cafe where JK Rowling created Harry Potter along the way, as well as take a visit to the Writer’s Museum or a ghost walk down Mary Kings Close. Alternatively take a wander down the city’s second most important thoroughfare, Princes Street on the southern edge of the New Town, where Edinburgh’s best shops and restaurants are located.
Don’t be fooled by the name of the New Town, this part of the city was built in the Georgian era and is characterised by lavish architecture. After you’ve enjoyed the city centre take a walk up to Arthur’s Seat in its elevated position in Holyrood Park, where you can enjoy stunning views back across Edinburg.
Head to the Royal Botanic Gardens for a walk around its beautiful glasshouses and lush gardens. As a major tourist destination, Edinburgh is no stranger to holiday accommodation and offers travellers a wide choice of cheap hotels, luxury hotels and b&bs, many of which can be found in the principle areas of the New Town and Old Town, within easy walking distance of the remainder of the city.
Accommodation can book up early during the month of August when the Edinburgh Fringe festival take place.
