World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Bring the kids along to Edinburgh Castle and Royal Yacht Britannia. There's lots more to do: take in the local highlights with Walking tours, steep yourself in history at Palace of Holyroodhouse, learn more about the world around you at National Museum of Scotland, and don't miss a visit to The Real Mary King's Close.

To see photos, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Edinburgh route app.

London to Edinburgh is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from London in August, with highs in Edinburgh at °C and lows at °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
