A famous festival and World Heritage Site

Scotland’s capital city Edinburgh is beautiful, buzzing and bountiful. From your hotel, take a trip to the striking Edinburgh Castle, walk down the Royal Mile and discover why Edinburgh is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The city is the home of some of the best boutique and luxury hotels in Britain which are deservedly popular and often booked months in advance. There are five selected GHG hotels in Edinburgh and ten shortlist hotels.

The city’s hotels are at their busiest during the Edinburgh International Festival which runs for four weeks in August.  The Edinburgh Festival Fringe runs alongside, with more than 2,500 shows – great for comedy and free performances. Also in August take part in the Edinburgh International Book Festival, attracting top authors, and see the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo where almost a thousand musicians, pipers, drummers, singers and dancers perform at the castle. Don’t forget to climb to the top of Arthur’s Seat – a hill about a mile from the castle – to get an amazing view.
