There’s a reason Edinburgh is a UNESCO heritage site, and it’s these astonishing parts of the city. Whether you’re exploring the old winding closes of the Old Town, or the palatial grids of the new, it’ll leave your architectural glands fulfilled. Living in Edinburgh means I get to enjoy this daily, and my favourite route to work takes me through St Andrew’s Square and up ‘The Mound’. You could spend your entire time in Edinburgh here and not come away disappointed.
Ancient and slightly less ancient towns. Architecturally astounding and a real step back in time!
Discover both Old and New Town on foot to get a real feel for the City. The New Town provides excellent shopping such in George Street, Princes Street and of course the luxury of Multree Walk as well as a vast array of eateries from Michelin starred to budget. The Old Town gives you a glimpse of what Edinburgh used to look like hundreds of years ago - beautifully preserved. Experiences such as Mary King's Close and the nightly Ghost tours are a fabulous way to learn more about its' sometimes dark but always fascinating history as well as its' many layers the town is made up of... definitely worthwhile!
well worth going to both and even going to the underground city was well worth it.
Edinburgh is a city that is a 'must visit'. Simply gorgeous!
old is how we used to live lots of interesting places to see
