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.


Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the largest arts festival in the world, taking place every August for three weeks in Scotland's capital city. It's a massive celebration of theatre, comedy, music and the arts in general, covering everything from edgy stand-up comedy at 1am to midday organ recitals - and just about anything you could imagine in between.


Even from its early days, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has been an international favourite: performers from over 48 countries have taken part over the years. These days, each Tattoo is very much a global gathering, showcasing the talents of musicians and performers from every corner of the globe, alongside a display of military prowess against the beautiful backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.


On the western outskirts of the city, it takes a bit of time and planning to get to Jupiter Artland but it's more than worth the effort. Wander through the woodland taking in specially commissioned sculptures by world-class artists as you go, and then marvel at the grassy land and water forms created by Scottish artist Charles Jencks. There's also an excellent cafe and shop on site. https://www.jupiterartland.org/


In the middle of the East Lothian countryside and worth seeking out, the Archerfield Walled Garden has enough going on to make it a whole day trip from the city. There's a large, light-filled cafe, cosy bar area, deli, gift shop and long walks around the pretty grounds. Kids will love the wishing tree and outdoor play area, with deer roaming freely all around. http://www.archerfieldwalledgarden.com/
