City Centre: Old & New
The centre of Edinburgh is split into two distinct areas: the Old Town and the New Town. In the former you will find some of Scotland’s most historic locations including the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Construction of The New Town began at the end of the 18th Century, so while it may be modern compared to the medieval street layout of the Old Town it is roughly as old as the United States is. Look out for boutique shops and art galleries as well as a number of pretty parks and waterways.
