Looking more like a film set than a city, Edinburgh is a picture postcard of Gothic and medieval streets that will impress even the most experienced traveller. Nicknamed the Athens of the North, Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful and atmospheric cities in Europe. It is certainly one of the most visited, seeing over a million tourists trampling its streets each year. They come for its snaking, medieval streets, Georgian architecture, popular festivals and the majestic Edinburgh Castle that has overlooked the city for centuries.
As the capital of Scotland, Edinburgh is full of things to see and do, from its scary age-old dungeons and submerged and forgotten medieval streets to art-filled galleries and royal palaces.

Rare oil works, memorabilia and even vintage railway posters feature in the Art of Golf exhibition, charting the rise of "Scotland's national sport" at the Mound galleries until 26 October (£8, Scottish National Gallery, The Mound, EH2 2EL, nationalgalleries.org).
