(114)

The Old Town is the name given to the oldest part of Scotland’s capital city, Edinburgh. Full of beautiful ancient buildings, narrow alleys, cobbled streets and hidden courtyards, Edinburgh’s Old Town is steeped in the city’s history.

Declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1995, the medieval Old Town stretches from the famous Edinburgh Castle, from its position on Castle Rock (an extinct volcano) to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Edinburgh’s Old Town is packed with things to see and do, as well as being home to some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes and nightlife.

Discover the charm of the bustling streets as you take a stroll along the Royal Mile, the heart of the Old Town and enjoy the medieval architecture, the packed pubs and the beautiful gift shops. Go back in time and visit Edinburgh Castle, a historic fortress once residence to the monarchs of Scotland. Explore the National Museum of Scotland and learn more about Scottish history or why not visit the Palace of Holyroodhouse also known as Holyrood Palace, the Queen and the Royal Family’s official residence in Scotland.
