Visit Edinburgh

The spirited home of our joyous G&V Royal Mile Hotel

Discover the Scottish Capital

We’re proud to stand in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. By turns sensational and sublime, the centuries-old wynds traverse a city that’s unabashed in its charisma and style. It’s a stage set for the beautiful – where the warmth, wit and humour of its people abound.



Things to Do in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a city of contrasts: from the tranquil play of the winter sunlight across the imposing sandstone facades, to the heady revelry of the long summer months, when streets and parklands are filled with late-night laughter and performances. This thriving city boasts a rich and storied history, told with a modern attitude. The perfect destination for urbane activity and outdoor pursuit, there’s no end of things to do. The elegant addresses of Multrees Walk and St Andrews Square are the go-to for luxury shopping, whilst the many world-class museums and galleries afford the perfect cultural diversion.

Tourist Attractions

The Scottish capital is a treasure trove of charming landmarks, making sightseeing a joy. Take a tour of Edinburgh Castle, then walk down the aptly named Royal Mile to Holyrood Palace – the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. You’ll walk past the Scottish Parliament buildings en route. Princes Street in the New Town is home to the imposing Scott Monument, which stands at 200 feet and 6 inches.

Other Edinburgh attractions include the beautiful Royal Botanic Garden, the Royal Yacht Britannia, St Giles’ Cathedral and Dean Village. There’s also the National Museum of Scotland, which hosts a diverse range of collections. The famous statue of Greyfriars Bobby can be found just opposite the museum. This Skye terrier was known for guarding his owner’s grave for 14 years in the 1800s.

Food, Entertainment and Parks

Here visitors can enjoy a medley of Michelin-starred restaurants and haute cocktail bars, plus traditional pubs and rustic eateries. Top of the social and cultural agenda, of course, is the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – the world’s largest arts festival.

For those seeking pastoral escape, walk through the spacious Holyrood Park and climb up to Arthur’s Seat, where you can take in spectacular views of Edinburgh’s crooked skyline. Calton Hill also offers exceptional views, with a more accessible ascent. Another popular Edinburgh park is The Meadows, which is just a short walk from the G&V.

More Sightseeing in Edinburgh

Rare for any city, Edinburgh is almost uniformly beautiful. Yet, each of its areas celebrates a very distinct identity. Discover the medieval fortress of the Old Town, or tread the refined neoclassical squares of the New Town – both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There’s also the up-and-coming area of Leith, a visit to which often means a walk in the bracing sea mist, or head to Stockbridge to sample the delights of the weekly Sunday market.

Welcome to a city of remarkable character and colour, where we’re delighted to be your guide.
