Edinburgh is the impressive historic capital of Scotland and features a wealth of interesting places. Book flights to Edinburgh and discover its castles, churches and pubs. Every pub offers a wide variety of whisky and you can visit the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre to learn how the Scottish gold is made. At night, combine your drink with a sturdy Scottish meal: haggis and stovies are served in every self-respecting restaurant.
The main street in the old centre of Edinburgh is known as the 'Royal Mile' and it is the city’s pride and joy. The street (which is indeed 1 mile long) runs straight through Edinburgh and connects Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. The historic 'Royal Mile' is charactarized by stately 16th and 17th-century homes. Deep below the 'Royal Mile' is Mary King’s Close: a labyrinth of spooky subterranean alleyways that will make you shudder. Not scary enough? There’s always the Edinburgh dungeons. Edinburgh is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Scotland. Experience it for yourself: book a flight to Edinburgh now!
The Scottish capital features lots of unique and ancient architecture with Edinburgh Castle as its proud highlight. The castle is located on a hill and towers high above the city. In the past it served as royal palace, arsenal, prison and a vault for the crown jewels. If you’re looking for a place to relax, check out the Royal Botanic Garden for a peaceful oasis filled with extraordinary plant varieties and classic greenhouses.
