A Entertainment in Edinburgh City Centre

The Edinburgh Tattoo has featured performers from over 40 countries over the years and around 35 per cent of the 217,000 audience each year are from overseas. It is nearly always brilliantly organised and the espanade of Edinburgh Castle provides a wonderfully atmospheric backdrop to the marching bands, dancing and sound and light spectaculars that feature in the show. Some tickets are always kept back for sale at the ticket office first thing in the morning. A must see.

Edinburgh City Centre

The Old Town of Edinburgh is built on a ridge that rises gradually from the Palace of Holyrood to Edinburgh Castle. There are staircase lanes, called Wynds, that lead off this 'Royal Mile' that give the impression of the city being built on multiple levels and buildings that date from the 11th Century. The New Town is also a World Heritage Site with its mix of Georgian town houses and the earliest examples in Europe of tenement flats. The views to be had from the Castle, Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill are dramatic and inspiring.
