Hilly Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital city, it has a medieval Old Town and an elegant Georgian New Town, with an abundance of gardens and neoclassical buildings. It’s home to Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano in Holyrood Park which has sweeping views of Edinburgh and beyond from its peak. Edinburgh Castle looms over the city from its hilltop, it is home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, traditionally used in the coronation of Scottish rulers.
But beyond it’s beauty, history and culture, Edinburgh is a cosmopolitan city with fine dining and drinking establishments galore!
Are we missing something?? Ask away in the Ask a Question Tab and we will chuck up an answer right here.What is Hogmanay?Hogmanay is the Scottish word for ‘New Year’. Every year on the 31st of December thousands of people gather in Edinburgh to celebrate this festival with parades, food, carnival rides, drinks and of course fireworks! The biggest and most famous part of the Hogmanay festival is the street party which starts at 7pm on the 31st of Dec and finishes at 1am on the 1st of Jan.Do we need a Passport?No you do not need a passport when travelling to Scotland as it is part of the United Kingdom.Can we leave our belonging on the train?You sure can, as you will be allocated into carriages but you will do so at your own risk.
