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,
youll 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 - youll be spoilt for choice.
