Welcome to Scotland’s capital city, a melting pot of rich heritage and history, a thriving arts scene, and one of the UK’s top shopping and leisure destinations.
When only great pizza will do, take a 5 minute wander to Civerinos Slice, located on Forrest Rd EH1 2QP, a hip and happening pizza place serving full pies or by the slice.
Who can really say they’ve visited Edinburgh without heading to this historic fortress? The volcanic Castle Rock that it sits upon is estimated to have formed some 350 million years ago. The
impressive building has played host to many a royal resident, as well as being a prison and an army garrison. A must see for all!
Start off your day with a freshly brewed coffee in the Elephant House that can be found just downstairs. This hideaway was a home away from home for JK Rowling as she wrote the Harry Potter series. This gives the café its unofficial title of ‘The Birthplace of Harry Potter’.
Enjoy the great outdoors of the capital with a trip to Arthur’s Seat. The tallest of the Seven Hills on which Edinburgh was founded, the hill is popular with visitors due to the relatively easy walk to the top. Experience breath-taking views of the city whilst filling your lungs with that famous Scottish air!
We’ve got a great motto… when all else fails, head to a good Irish Bar! Biddy Mulligans in the historic Grassmarket is one of the most famous Irish Pubs in the UK, and with good reason. With live music every evening and a rip roaring atmosphere for sports of almost any kind, it’s a great place to let your hair down and have some fun.

It doesn’t get more Scottish than Ghillie Dhu, an impressive venue housed within a former Church in the West End of the city. Their Burly Ceilidh Club happens every Friday & Saturday from 7pm, where you can enjoy three courses and a live ceilidh band for £35 per person.
