The Old Town is so jam packed with things to do, it is hard to describe in a paragraph. For us The Old Town runs from Mound Place and Market Street to Bristo Square and from Lothian Road to The Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of Edinburgh, sitting magnificently as it does looking out over the city. It can be seen from miles around. Listen out for the One O’clock gun every day. The massively popular Edinburgh Military Tattoo plays to thousands here each festival. The Camera Obscura will delight both adults and children alike, as will The National Museum of Scotland. Following a major refurbishment, the museum is world class. Greyfriar’s Bobby keeps watch across the road and a wander around the churchyard of Greyfriars Kirk is fascinating and potentially spooky. If you are a sucker for a ghost story, Mary King’s Close is guaranteed to make you scream and there are many ghost tours starting on the High Street. St Giles Cathedral rises magnificently above the Royal Mile and all the closes that run off it are well worth a day exploring. The Palace of Holyroodhouse, The Queen’s Official Residence in Edinburgh, is stunning and sits opposite The Scottish Parliament.Read More
