A travel guide to Edinburgh is a wonderful gift for any traveller and can be found at Edinburgh’s most popular tourist attractions.
But while some of these might be familiar to the general public, there are also some gems hidden away in Edinburgh’s parks, castles, gardens and monuments.
Below we’ve listed some of our favourite places in the city to take a break from your daily routine and indulge in a bit of Englishness.
If you’re not a fan of the usual tourist attractions, you can always try to visit the most famous landmark in Edinburgh: the Edinburgh Castle.
The Castle stands in the heart of Edinburgh, with its magnificent stained glass windows and grand arched entrance.
It’s the biggest and most famous tourist attraction in Scotland, with more than a million visitors a year.
But the Castle is also home to the most unique tourist attractions in Edinburgh.
One of the most iconic attractions in the town is the Scottish Parliament, which is run by the House of Lords.
The chamber of the House has the most beautiful stained glass in Scotland and can still be seen on Sundays.
The Palace of Westminster is a historic building, which was built in 1832 to house the Queen and her court.
It was one of the first buildings built by British royalty and is one of Scotland’s most famous landmarks.
It houses the Queen’s personal home.
If there are no other attractions in town, you might want to explore the Old Fort, the site of one of England’s largest battles in the 16th century.
It stands on the banks of the Forth, just outside Edinburgh.
It has the largest cannon ever built in England, the largest fort in Europe, and the largest artillery battery in the world.
You can find more about the fort here.
You could also take a day trip to Scotland’s largest natural landmark, the Eiffel Tower.
This is the largest structure in the universe, measuring some 8,000 metres high.
You’ll find a great view of the city, but don’t expect to see a sunrise, sunset or a sunset at the top.
Instead, you’ll be treated to views of the mountains, lakes, castles and more.
As the city’s skyline rises and falls in the background, you’re bound to see some incredible sights.
The Eiffels are one of Europe’s most beautiful and important landmarks.
The tower is one the tallest structures in the country and stands on top of one the most spectacular structures in Europe: the Eisling Tower.
The top of the tower is made up of glass that glows with the colour of sunlight.
The sheer size of the structure makes it one of only a few structures in Britain that can be seen from the top of it.
The Tower is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has a magnificent history.
The story of how the tower came to be is well documented in The Life of the Eifel Tower by Richard Thomas.
