Edinburgh Where the past and present live in harmony

Direct flights from Cardiff to Edinburgh

Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland, makes an extraordinary city break because it is the perfect mix of old and new. There is its iconic castle, which towers over the city as an ancient protector, juxtaposed with stunning Georgian architecture that blends seamlessly with modern shops and attractions.

These contrasting features can be seen in the Old and New Towns, which are designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here you will be encouraged to discover their fascinating cultural developments.

After all that exploring you will want to rest your feet, so take a moment to enjoy some traditional Scottish cooking at the many restaurants and bars. Only then will you have had your first real taste of Edinburgh!

  1. Discover the castle. It wouldn’t be a trip to Edinburgh without visiting its castle, a place that encapsulates the very essence of the city. Within its walls you will find the Scottish Crown Jewels and the Scottish National War Museum, which are both must-see attractions.
  2. Go to the zoo! Since Edinburgh Zoo welcomed some very special guests, Tian Tian and Yang Guang the giant pandas, the zoo has become a popular tourist attraction.
  3. Feel on top of the world! Head to Holyrood park and walk to Arthur’s Seat where you can experience some spectacular views of Edinburgh and Fife.
  4. Jump on a guided tour. If you want some insider knowledge about the streets of Edinburgh book a place on one of the many guided walking tours. You never know what you will find!
  5. Indulge at the markets! Edinburgh regularly hosts farmers markets and there is a weekly market in Edinburgh’s Castle Terrace which is the largest in Scotland.

Walk up Arthurs seat for amazing views of the city, use the hop-on-hop-off bus to get around and walk up to see the main entrance of the castle lit up at night.
