You’d be hard pressed to find a city quite as beautiful as Edinburgh. From its cobbled streets to its beautiful architecture, you can easily lose yourself in the Scottish capital, admiring the prettiness of this picturesque city.

Thousands of people flock to Edinburgh every year to appreciate what it has to offer. From the vibrant cultural offerings, including the Fringe Festival and the Military Tattoo, to the history and heritage that oozes from its pores, you can guarantee to find plenty of things to fill your itinerary to make sure you head back home feeling enriched and uplifted.

Click here to check the Travelodge website, where you will find some incredible deals ensuring your stay in the capital won’t break the bank. Centrally located, your hotel will be a perfect base to explore the city and as it covers a fairly small surface area, you will be able to appreciate your surroundings with ease. 

The quality of the attractions in Edinburgh is one of the reasons why people love visiting the city, but there are definitely some things that should be placed at the top of your to-do list once you’ve unpacked your bags and settled in. 



Edinburgh Castle 
You can’t really miss this fortification as it towers over city atop its own tor. This vast monument of Edinburgh’s history is home to the Scottish Crown Jewels while the military history within its walls is impressive, to say the least. Wander the castle, absorbing the history within before capturing a snapshot of this stunning landmark after nightfall, when its majestic beauty is lit up for all to see. 



Arthur’s Seat 
The climb to the top of this hill may not be possible for those who are less able-bodied, but if you have the fitness and stamina to withstand the hike, it should be done, because the views are unrivaled.
Starting in the city, the hike takes you through Holyrood Park before reaching the top of this extinct volcano. Don’t forget your camera – you’ll need to it capture the incredible panoramic vistas.



The National Gallery of Scotland
This free attraction would be ideal to while away an afternoon in the capital. From Italian Renaissance to post-impressionism, the works of art hanged on its walls are things of beauty. Some of the most famous artists of all time can be found in the gallery, including Raphael, Renoir and Vincent Van Gogh. 



Ghost Tours
Perfect for those who fancy a taste of the macabre, Edinburgh ghost tours are notorious for how creepy and chilling they can be. Take a tour of the cobbled streets and eerie lanes, whilst being regaled by the city’s horrible history. There are plenty of tours available in the city, but Auld Reekie comes highly recommended by previous visitors to the capital.



Our Dynamic Earth
Perfect if you’re travelling with children, Old Dynamic Earth is a museum like no other. Its interactive nature means you can get tucked in with the action while being transported through climates, eras and landscapes to help you appreciate what our world is capable of.

Take a trip to Edinburgh this summer and spend a couple of days appreciating what it has to offer – you won’t be disappointed.
