The Lothians region
Edinburgh offers a wide range of activities as befits Scotland's capital city and is wonderful to visit at any time of year; it is small and intimate enough to allow the visitor to wander through its streets absorbing its architecture and atmosphere.
The city has medieval origins and many of its best known sights are to be found in the Old Town around the Royal Mile. It also, by contrast, has one of the largest areas of Georgian buildings in the world and these are to be found in what is called the New Town.
The Royal Mile runs from Edinburgh Castle at one end down to Holyrood Palace at the bottom. Many of Edinburgh’s major tourist attractions are to be found in this vicinity though half the charm of this vibrant part of town is to explore the city’s ancient medieval closes which lead off the main thoroughfare.
This area with its medieval origins also extends to the Grassmarket and Victoria Street which have an array of enticing shops, bars and restaurants. Visit Gladstone's Land, Holyrood Abbey and Palace (not forgetting the Queen's Gallery which hosts exhibitions from the Royal Collection), Dynamic Earth, the controversial Scottish Parliament building and John Knox's House.
Further out of the centre a trip to the royal yacht"Britannia" which is moored in Leith is always popular. Edinburgh Zoo, with the famous penguin parade, is a must for families with children.
