Edinburgh Vacation Packages

Visitors to this part of Edinburgh and Lothian rub shoulders with approximately 440,000 residents.

This destination is truly unique. No trip here is complete if you miss Edinburgh Castle and Arthur's Seat. It is also famous for St. Giles' Cathedral and Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Let the kids run amok at Camera Obscura and World of Illusions and Edinburgh International Climbing Arena Ratho. Butterfly and Insect World and East Links Family Park are also worth stopping by if you're looking for more ways to keep little ones busy.

If you love learning about animals, the Edinburgh Zoo and the Five Sisters Zoo are obvious choices. Combined with a zookeeper presentation at Scottish Owl Centre, you are guaranteed to have a blast.

If you'd like to learn about the local plant species, a visit to the Royal Botanic Garden and the Dunbar’s Close Garden is a great idea.

Bring along some lunch and take five in the tranquil surroundings of Princes Street Gardens and The Meadows. You'll also find plenty of room to lie down in the grass at Dalkeith Country Park and Vogrie Country Park.

Not quite sure what to see next? You're guaranteed to stumble upon some fun ideas at Preston Mill & Phantassie Doocot Mill and Edinburgh Visit Scotland Information Centre.

Skim some stones across the placid water, discover the local birdlife and have a picnic at Black Loch.

Looking for a place to spend a relaxing afternoon? Pack up the car and drive out to Portobello Beach or Longniddry Bents for a wholesome day outdoors. Locals might also point you in the direction of Yellowcraigs and Tyninghame Beach.

Switch off your phone and give yourself a break from the stresses of the modern world at Calton Hill and Holyrood Park. Nature-loving travellers will also have an excellent time at North Berwick Harbour and Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve.

The area's exhibition spaces are a gold mine of interesting facts and stories. The Our Dynamic Earth and the Scotch Whisky Experience offer a range of collections that are bound to keep you captivated. The Museum of Childhood and the National War Museum are also worth a visit.

The Trinity House will send you floating through this region's nautical history. Overflowing with sea-bound tales and salvaged artifacts, the whole crew is bound to like this one.

The specimens at the Surgeon's Hall aren't just heaps of fun to look at. They also play an important role in our understanding of the natural world.

Do you love art? You'll discover galleries of all varieties here. Soak up the creative atmosphere at the National Gallery of Scotland and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Afterwards, if you still have some energy left in the tank, wind up the afternoon at the Fruitmarket Gallery and the Talbot Rice Gallery.

Take yourself back through time and uncover stories of yesteryear at the National Museum of Scotland and the Newhaven Heritage Museum. The People's Story Museum and the Annet House Museum are also worthy choices.

Greyfriars Kirk and the University of Edinburgh are certainly worth taking a look at, even if you're not that into history. When it comes to bygone times, there's always something else to know. The Heriot Watt University and Real Mary King's Close are two more insightful places to stop by.

Forth Rail Bridge and Nungate Bridge are age-old historic structures that will survive well into the future.

Learn a little about the lives of some of the area's most influential families with a visit to the impressive grounds of Linlithgow Palace.

After a day at Craigmillar Castle or Blackness Castle, you'll feel like you're back in the days of jousting and court jesters! For even more intersting views and historical lessons, go and explore Dirleton Castle and Hawthornden Castle.

Whether you consider yourself a spiritual person or not, you're sure to have a nice time at Rosslyn Chapel and St Mary's Church. You may also like to explore St. Michael's Parish Church and St. Mary's Episcopal Cathederal.

After checking out all of the principle attractions around Edinburgh, take the time to explore a couple of its lesser-known gems. Greyfriar's Bobby and the National Library of Scotland are some good options. Also, consider seeing the Glenkinchie Distillery and Omni Centre Edinburgh if you can squeeze it in.

Accommodation in Edinburgh

You'll discover 409 hotels and apartments in the country's capital. Head to Expedia's Edinburgh hotel page to find the best offers.

If you're celebrating a special occasion, check out the amenities at The Balmoral Hotel, at 1 Princes Street, and the Prestonfield House, at Priestfield Road. Alternatively, in the more economical range, you can check out the Lyncliff Hotel and the ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile – Hunter Square. The Lyncliff Hotel is at 4 Windsor Street, while the ibis Edinburgh Centre Royal Mile – Hunter Square is situated at 6 Hunter Square.

Another great option is to stay just a short stroll away from Edinburgh Castle. You can do this by booking in at the Old Town Chambers, which is just 0.3 miles away. Equally popular is the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, Edinburgh, 0.3 miles away.
