Stay in Edinburgh and see it all!

Packed with medieval tenements, narrow wynds of the Old Town and the sweeping elegance of the Georgian New Town, there's no question that Edinburgh deserves its reputation as one of the most enthralling cities in the world. With an unparalleled range of attractions, fantastic shopping, a fabulous bar and café culture, a varied arts scene and beautiful green spaces to unwind at, holidaying in Edinburgh is a pure pleasure. We stay somewhere central though, as Edinburgh in the evening is cosmopolitan, vibrant and should not be missed!

Scotland is a always a firm favourite and this holiday is packed with some of the Edinburgh's best visitor attractions. Yes, you'll have free time to relax and get out and about to explore at your leisure, but the key is our included tours and attractions.

Scotland's capital lives and breathes history and on a coach tour to Edinburgh you’re likely to get to see far more than you bargained for. See the prehistoric volcano and iconic Edinburgh Castle – Scotland’s top paid for attraction. Head along the Royal Mile to the 17th century Palace of Holyroodhouse and touch the heart of the still wonderful Royal Yacht Britannia. Jump on our guided tour of Edinburgh too, at least to get your bearings!

Our hotel is about 15 minutes by foot to Princes Street and a quick walk from Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Of course, we will have breakfast and dinner included but don't forget to get out and about in the evening... Edinburgh by night is a real treat!
