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.

When the autumn nights start drawing in, it's time to look for cosy indoor activities. So why not head to Portobello, Edinburgh's seaside, for something a little different. One of only three Turkish baths still in operation in Scotland, the idea is to work your way through chambers of various temperatures on a repeat cycle as many times as you like before taking a bracing dip in the Frigidarium.

In the beautifully landscaped grounds of the Royal Botanic Garden, award-winning light show Botanic Lights returns in October to take night-time visitors on a magical trail of colour, light and projection. As darkness descends, light installations transform the Victorian Palm House and the Chinese Hillside, illuminating the rich collection of plants and turning the whole garden into a magical story. From 13 October. (www.botaniclights.co.uk)

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/
