Edinburgh, United Kingdom




Edinburgh is both deeply historic and very modern. There is a great deal of natural beauty with striking countryside surrounding the city. One of most impressive features is Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano and the supposed site of Camelot. It also offers plenty of culture; it was named the first UNESCO city of literature, it includes Holyrood Palace which is the Queen’s residence in Scotland, and it contains three Scottish National Galleries. For those looking for great food and drink there are a wide range of award-winning restaurants and bars.

Have a look at the city's website to learn more, or have a look at the Lonely Planet site for ideas of what to do while you're here.

Edinburgh was established in the 12th century, but there have been traces of settlement in the area back to the Mesolithic Era. From this early settlement the city has been the site of a rich and varied history. It has been host to conflicts as well as intellectual triumphs in the fields of history, science and philosophy.
