Top Things To Do In Edinburgh
Boasting a dramatically beautiful Old Town and stylishly modern New Town, it´s little wonder that millions of visitors flock to Edinburgh each year. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is a stunning city that is filled with jaw-dropping architecture and wide open spaces; the city features dramatic changes in light and has a majestic presence. Without straying away from the topic any further, here are some of the top things you must do in Edinburgh.
1) Try some whisky
You would be foolish to not taste some whisky while in Edinburgh. There isn’t a dearth of drinking establishments in the city; therefore, you won´t have any difficulty finding quality whiskies to quaff on the cheap. Even the most premium of brands are quite affordable. And, if you are a student of alcohol and would like to know more about the origins of whisky and how it´s made, we would recommend you to pay a visit to the Scotch Whisky Experience. The visit will not burn a huge hole in your pocket.
2) Visit the National Museum of Scotland
It can take you an entire day and more to go through the impressive collection of artefacts and objects the National Museum of Scotland has to offer. In fact, to be precise, the museum houses a whopping 20,000 historical artefacts spanning thousands of years and originating from countries all over the world. The National Museum of Scotland is a fantastic place for family and can be easily enjoyed by people of all ages. We are certain that your children will enjoy watching the taxidermies in the Natural World galleries. We have saved the best bit for last—admission to this museum is free!
3) Visit the Royal Botanic Garden
Edinburgh´s botanical garden, The Royal Botanic Garden, is truly a cut above the rest. Initially set up in 1670, the garden is spread over an area of 70 acres. The Royal Botanic Garden accommodates over 3,000 exotic plants from all over the globe, spread out among its 10 glasshouses, each with a different climatic zone. However, the garden is most popular for its impressive collection of rhododendron flowers. After you are done seeing the flowers, you can stroll through the Scottish Heath Garden that is a recreation of the Scottish highlands. You can also visit the Rock Garden that is home to over 5,000 alpine plants or simply view the contemporary art gallery in the Inverleith House.
4) Visit Arthur´s Seat
If you want an unobstructed, unparalleled view of Edinburgh, we would highly recommend you to visit Arthur´s Seat. Standing 800 feet above sea level, Arthur´s Sea provides panoramic views of the sea and nearby sites, including attractions like Scott Monument and the Edinburgh Castle. We would advise you to wear a comfortable pair of sneakers while making the journey to Arthur´s Seat. The uphill climb can be difficult for those who are not used to regular walking. The fact that Arthur´s Seat is free to access only adds to its charm.
