Book a Scottish Staycation with Cityroomz Edinburgh
Edinburgh is one of Britain’s most popular cities to visit.
Compact and hilly, the city spans a mediaeval Old Town and an elegant Georgian era New Town with lush green gardens and neo-classical architecture.
At its centre is breath-taking Edinburgh Castle perched on top of a dormant volcano, the end point of the hustling bustling Royal Mile, a favourite of the tourists and thrill seekers who queue to experience ghost hunts and street theatre.
The Castle is home to the Stone of Destiny, an ancient symbol of Scotland’s monarchy and Scotland’s Honours, the oldest regal crown jewels. At 1 o’clock each day, the sound of shot rings through the streets as the castle guns fire.
An ideal way to experience Edinburgh on a Scottish staycation is to take a themed tour of the city, taking in famous stories like that of loyal Skye terrier Greyfriar’s Bobby and grave robbers Burke and Hare.
Get a true taste of Scotland with a wee dram or three at The Scotch Whisky Experience or soak up culture and innovation at the free National Museum of Scotland.
For lovers of the outdoors and fresh air, Edinburgh is blessed with incredible parks and gardens. In Holyrood Park you can climb Arthur’s Seat, an iconic extinct volcano which sits 251m above sea level and offers 360-degree views of Edinburgh and the Lothians.
Planning your next staycation can be exciting but, before you set out, make sure to refer to your destination's local restrictions as well as any Covid-19 guidelines for local attractions.
