Edinburgh is a beautifully historic town that also manages to successfully keep its finger on the pulse for contemporary, popular culture; there is a long list of iconic landmarks, from the imposing Edinburgh Castle to Arthur’s Seat, which should all be on your to-do list when you visit. Plus the city is well-known for its vibrant nightlife and music and arts scene.

Families with young children shouldn’t miss the chance to see the world turned upside down at the popular Camera Obscura & the World of Illusion. First opened in Victorian times, the centre allows visitors to see a unique and peculiar view of the city generated from a series of mirrors that project on a small white screen. The concept is still as fascinating and baffling today as it was when the Camera Obscura was first created in the 1850s, and for those who are especially interested there is a small museum with exhibits, explaining the history and science behind the invention.
Without a doubt the best way to travel around and familiarise yourself with the capital, is by walking the winding, cobbled lanes, up and down the hills and in between the picturesque architecture and magnificent walls. For the more adventurous and daring visitors, there are several spooky walking tours that talk place after dark, such as Mercat Walking Tours and City of the Dead Tours, as well as the eerie route around Mary King’s Close – keep your eyes and ears open!
