Discover the ins and outs of the 'Royal Mile'
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!
High on the hill
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.
