Not only a capital city, Edinburgh is also the leading festival city in the world, home to phenomenal (and we really do mean phenomenal) summer festivals, and a UNESCO World Heritage to boot. Wherever you look, the city buzzes with a sense of excitement all year round.

Packed with medieval tenements of the Old Town and the elegance of the Georgian New Town, there's no question that Edinburgh deserves its reputation as one of the most stunning cities in the world.

With a multitude of world-class attractions, the list of things to see and do in Edinburgh is pretty long, and you can experience different centuries of history without taking many steps. From the famous Royal Mile, to the 17th century Palace of Holyroodhouse, then there’s the modern parliament building and the prehistoric extinct volcano famously known as Arthur's Seat standing proudly next to each other. And that's just two examples.

With an unparalleled range of events, fantastic shopping, a fabulous bar and café culture, exciting nightlife including a vibrant gay community with lots of events and nights out, a varied arts scene, relaxing spas and beautiful green spaces to unwind at - life in Edinburgh is a pretty awesome. Add to this the spectacular surroundings of the Lothians, and you've got a recipe for a great lifestyle.

And when you think Edinburgh can’t come alive anymore, there’s the renowned Fringe and Hogmanay celebrations, allowing the city to truly shine.
