Edinburgh is a city of vital contrasts: from the tranquil play of the winter sunlight across the imposing sandstone facades, to the atmosphere of heady revelry during the long summer months – when streets and parklands are filled with late night laughter and performance. This thriving city boasts a rich and storied history, as told with a thoroughly modern, cosmopolitan 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.
Here visitors enjoy a medley of Michelin starred restaurants and haute cocktail bars, plus legendary inns and rustic, homely eateries. Top of the social and cultural agenda, of course, is Edinburgh Festival Fringe – arguably the world’s most important arts and culture events. Or, for those seeking pastoral escape, the impression of Edinburgh’s rocky terrain afforded from the panorama of Arthur’s Seat is truly memorable.
Rare for any city, Edinburgh is almost uniformly beautiful. Yet, each of its districts 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. A jaunt over to Leith announces 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.
