Until the late 18th century, Edinburgh consisted, almost exclusively, of what is now known as the Old Town (the area where you'll find the Castle, Royal Mile and Grassmarket).

The world famous University was founded in 1583, setting in motion the city's educational and professional development. The Bank of Scotland was founded in 1695, the first of many new ventures that would see Edinburgh established as a leading financial capital by the end of the 20th century.

1707 saw the Act of Union, which joined Scotland and England together politically, and moved power from Edinburgh's old parliament to London's Westminster. With streets steeped in history and a thriving cultural scene, the City of Edinburgh offers the perfect balance between all things traditional and contemporary.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site at the heart of the city combines the medieval Old Town, the Georgian New Town and award winning modern architecture. Explore Edinburgh at your leisure, you’ll see views that make for perfect picture postcards, mysterious winding streets, elegant terraces and an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants.

The beautiful city of Edinburgh is an enchanting place for a spring and summer break. With a wonderful menu of events and festivals including the spring International Science Festival, the Film Festival and the Edinburgh Festivals including the Jazz, Book and Fringe - you’ll be spoilt for choice.
