The historic and beautiful city of Edinburgh - the capital of Scotland - stands proudly on seven hills, creating the dramatic skyline of this lively cosmopolitan city! Walk over or around Arthur's Seat, which is one of the seven hills of Edinburgh, which looms over the city and offers many different walks and aspects of the city.
On this tour, you can also compare Edinburgh's Old Town where, in the old days, families lived in cramped conditions where rubbish was thrown out of the windows, to the elegant Georgian New Town, with its three main streets and handsome squares at either end. Stroll through the delightful Charlotte Square, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and part of the New Town.
Hear about the gruesome hangings that took place in the Grassmarket, as you marvel at the impenetrable Castle Rock above you and hear about the attempts to capture Edinburgh Castle! Discover all the spooky nooks & crannies on the Royal Mile, which joins Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace...and why not stop off for a well deserved break at any of the cosy pubs and restaurants you’ll find along the way!

Discover more of Edinburgh’s history, in the National Museum of Scotland, or take an epic journey through time at ‘Our Dynamic Earth’.
