All the culture you can handle

Looking to book a city break to Edinburgh in August? In that case, you’ll want to attend the vibrant Edinburgh Fringe, the world’s largest festival of the arts. The festival attracts the best artists in the world, who bring the city to life each year.

Discover Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is one of the city’s most famous attractions. You literally can’t miss it, as the castle looms over the city centre. This makes the view from the castle wall truly breathtaking. Did you know that the castle is home to important Scottish cultural objects? These include the Honours of Scotland (the oldest crown jewels in the United Kingdom) and the Stone of Destiny (the centuries-old coronation stone of the kings of Scotland). For the ultimate experience, book a tour with a chatelain who will share all the secrets of Edinburgh Castle. Tip: be sure to stick around the castle a little longer after your tour, as the cannon is fired every hour on the hour (except on Sundays).

‘‘You’ll find Edinburgh a pleasant surprise. There are so many great attractions here! Scottish hospitality and friendliness will put the finishing touch on your holiday.”

Braving the rain

Scotland is well known for its fickle weather. But even when it rains, there’s still plenty to do in Edinburgh. For instance: visit the National Museum of Scotland, one of the city’s best indoor attractions. With over 20,000 objects on display, the whole family will be entertained. Learn about natural wonders, the tombs of ancient Egypt and even the very latest in modern technology. And if the sun decides to show itself, take the lift up to the museum’s roof and enjoy the spectacular view. Another idea is to visit outer space at Dynamic Earth, a fun, educational and fascinating place for the whole family. Kids can go on a voyage through time and space and learn everything there is to know about the forces that shaped the Earth millions of years ago.
