The Edinburgh attractions are many; the city has something for everyone and much more on offer than you may realise. Edinburgh is a beautiful city which sits on rocky outcrops and overlooks the sea; ancient monuments and buildings are perched on the jagged crags and the whole city is overseen by the castle. To make the most of your visit, have a look at our list of Edinburgh attractions before you go but make sure that you leave plenty of time to wander around the picturesque old town and neoclassical new town. One of the greatest Edinburgh attractions is its easy accessibility and that it can be explored easily on foot. Here’s my 8 Top Attractions of Edinburgh:
1. Edinburgh Castle
The most obvious of sights of Edinburgh is its castle; it would be easy to spend hours looking at the various war exhibitions and memorials as well as Scotland’s Crown Jewels which are housed in the castle. Make sure that you also have time to take in the views from the walls and ramparts which offer visitors a unique perspective of the city. Mons Meg, one of the oldest and largest cannons in existence is fired from the castle every day at 1pm and shouldn’t be missed.
