Hotels and Attractions in Edinburgh City Centre
One of the great things about staying in Edinburgh’s city centre is that all of the major tourist attractions are within walking distance. Visitors can wander the cobbled streets and narrow wynds of the historic Old Town before sauntering into the pretty Georgian New Town all in the space of a day. The city also has a fantastic bus and tram network, if you want to take the weight off your feet.
For travellers coming to Edinburgh for the first time the big stops are undoubtedly Edinburgh Castle on the Royal Mile and The Scott Monument on Princes Street. These grand structures are prominent reminders of the city’s rich heritage and ticket prices to enter are reasonable.
