Things to do in Edinburgh
- Soak up “the Festival”
The cultural jamboree that takes over the city in August is generally referred to as 'the Festival' and includes film, books, jazz, politics, art and the Fringe.
- Climb a volcano and wander around Edinburgh Castle
No other city has an extinct volcano in its limits, so climbing to Arthur's Seat, the tallest of Edinburgh's seven hills, is an essential activity. No-one should leave the city without wandering round lofty Edinburgh Castle which can be seen from all over town. Book a fast-track ticket and skip-the-line. More >>
