The beauty of multi-stop travelling is that you really can go anywhere you choose, flying literally allows you to cover the entire globe within your two-week vacation.
But, if you’ve never considered Edinburgh multi-stop travelling then you’re missing out. The capital city of Scotland is a fascinating and vibrant place to visit, it doesn’t even matter what time of year you choose.
The city itself is split into an old town that has architecture dating from Medieval times, while the new town is still old by many standards, the architecture reflects the Georgian period of the 19th century.
Fly in, check out the city and make this an Edinburgh multi-stop travelling experience by visiting all of the following places:
The castle sits on a great rock over the New Town. It actually dates from the Iron Age and dominates the skyline. You’ll need to see it to fully appreciate it.
This is actually one of the oldest pieces of architecture on the Royal Mile. It still reflects the tenement life of Medieval times.
In fact, this building had to be rescued by the National Trust as it was in disrepair. Now it reminds you of its former opulence and you can still see the rare hand-painted interiors from the 17th century Renaissance.
National Galleries Of Scotland
Even if you’re not interested in art it’s worth looking at one of the three galleries, you’ll find an impressive collection of classic artwork to satisfy any inquisitive mind.
National Museum of Scotland
This impressive and surprisingly large museum is actually in several buildings, some of which are ancient sandstone, others are from the Victorian era. Alongside a fascinating collection of artefacts, you’ll be impressed by the actual interiors. The atrium has high windows and pillars that seem to shoot into the heavens.
Palace Of Holyroodhouse
This is the official residence of the Queen of England when she visits Scotland! You can take a guided tour to see the official greeting rooms. OF course, you may prefer to see the older section where Mary Queen of Scots had her assistant assassinated.
You can also see the link between Mary and Queen Elizabeth I.
Royal Botanic Garden
This garden is every bit as impressive as it’s the more famous sister, London’s Kew Gardens. There is a little bit of everything here, giving enough to please everyone. It’s worth a visit even if you have no interest in plants.
Scottish Parliament Building
This former Brewery sits across the road from the Palace of Holyroodhouse and was once a brewery.
It’s now home to the Scottish Parliament and an extremely important building in the current Brexit crisis.
Café St Homore
You can sample the skills of chef Neil Forbes at this delightful spot. He has been linked with many of the best dishes in Edinburgh over the last 20 years!
You may also want to check out the other great eateries, such as Spoon, The Kitchin, Wedgwood the Restaurant, and Fingal
