Things To Do In Edinburgh

It's easy to find a whole variety of great things to do in Edinburgh. A brilliant open-top sightseeing bus tour service encompasses virtually every top landmark and attraction throughout the Old and New Town districts of Scotland's capital. All the tour buses depart from Waverley Bridge. Some of them follow hop-on hop-off routes contained solely within the city centre, such as the Edinburgh Tour, but others head out to the wider suburban area.

The Edinburgh Majestic Tour is one such tour that makes stops at the Botanical Gardens and the port town of Leith, where you can find the popular Royal Yacht Britannia. There is also a City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off bus tour which includes commentary in several languages plus a unique Horrible Histories channel narrated by the author - Terry Deary - himself!

Fun walking tours are another hugely popular thing to do in Edinburgh. The city's best walking tour operator, Mercat Tours, runs daily tours from sun up till sundown, with themes ranging from the historical to the paranormal. Join them on a night time descent into the subterranean Blair Street Vaults or uncover the secrets of the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle.

Edinburgh Castle is a particularly unmissable attraction whether you decide to take an official tour or not. The ancient defender of the Scottish capital stands atop an extinct volcano and houses various things to see and do. Explore the exhibits of the National War Museum and Royal Scots Museum, view the firing of the one o'clock gun, admire the devastating Mons Meg bombard, and witness the Scottish Crown Jewels display. It's possible to skip Edinburgh Castle's entry queue with our ticket bookable online.

One especially great thing about the City of Edinburgh is that so much of Scotland is accessible from its centre. After booking the Historic Scotland Explorer Pass you can retrieve it from a redemption centre located at the Edinburgh Castle ticket office. By booking a coach day tour with Rabbies you can venture out into the Scottish Highlands and even further afield to locations in Northern England such as Hadrian's Wall and Alnwick Castle. Each coach day tour has a unique itinerary and a host of special activities.

If you decide to stay within the capital there's still no shortage of things to do. Most of Edinburgh's best attractions are free to enter, such as the National Museum of Scotland, the Scottish National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery. Those which you have to pay to enter include Mary King's Close, Our Dynamic Earth (science centre), Edinburgh Zoo and The Dungeon which you can also book online here.
