Edinburgh


World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Our Dynamic Earth and Phoenix Falconry. Venture out of the city with trips to Andy Howeys Birds of Prey Centre (in Berwick upon Tweed) and Glasgow (Glasgow Tigers Speedway & Glasgow Science Centre). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Edinburgh Castle, examine the collection at National Museum of Scotland, browse the exhibits of Royal Yacht Britannia, and don't miss a visit to The Royal Mile.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Edinburgh travel itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Edinburgh Airport, Glasgow International Airport and Glasgow Prestwick Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 56°F, and evening lows to 42°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
