Edinburgh Castle (See Details):

This mighty and noble edifice perched atop Castle Rock has the been the centrepiece of the Scottish capital for hundreds of years. The earliest buildings comprising the current structure were built during the 12th century, though the occupation of the site as a defensive position has been dated as far back as the Bronze Age. Throughout its history it has served as a royal residence, a military barracks and a prison for POWs of various significant conflicts of the 2nd millennium. Nowadays Edinburgh Castle draws in sightseers from across the globe, often representing the first port of call for new visitors to the capital.

Explore military tradition in the Regimental Museums, meet Mons Meg and spectate the firing of the One o’clock Gun. As well as these permanent features the castle also hosts the annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo and provides a backdrop for the Edinburgh International Festival.

Royal Yacht Britannia (See Details):

Once the official yacht of the British monarchy Britannia was decommissioned in 1997 and has since opened to tourists as a 5-star visitor attraction. The marvellous ship is permanently berthed at Leith and is easily reachable via the Majestic Tour.

Palace of Holyroodhouse:

This is the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. The Queen spends a week here at the beginning of every summer during which time she conducts official engagements and ceremonies. Throughout most of the year, however, the palace is open to the public with visitors allowed into the Apartments of Mary, Queen of Scots and the State Apartments.

Address: Canongate, Edinburgh EH8 8DX.

Opening Hours:

  • Nov-Mar: 09:30-16:30 (last admission 15:15).
  • Apr-Oct: 09:30-18:00 (last admission 16:30).


The Bus Tours:

Once you have exchanged your ticket voucher on Waverley Bridge you will receive a pass that allows you to jump between each of these three bus tour services. Passes are valid 48-hours from the point of first use.

City Sightseeing Tour (See Details):

Jump aboard the City Sightseeing open-top bus for some of the best views of Edinburgh. Entertaining and informative commentary is available in nine different languages, as well as the Terry Deary Horrible Histories commentary – a great option for kids!

Edinburgh Tour (See Details):

This is the quintessential city centre tour which takes in parts of New Town such as Rose and George Street that the other two bus tours do not. In addition it does a full circuit of the Old Town. Live English-speaking guides are available from April-November, and recorded English commentary from November-April.

The Majestic Tour (See Details):

This tour takes you on a journey from the City Centre, through the New Town and out to the coast of Newhaven and Leith, then back via Edinburgh's Old Town.
