Edinburgh

Our scrapbook notes about Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland in the UK and a very popular tourist city. The city is great for combining ancient and modern architecture with a mixed atmosphere. The city has its cultural side with Edinburgh castle and Georgian buildings, but it also has its more modern and edgy side with the Edinburgh fringe festival and its many great bars and clubs. The city is also good to visit for the famous New Years eve festival Hogmanay. The city is easy to get to due to its airport, and planes can be caught from London, however there are also trains (including overnight trains) available. As the city is a popular destination there is accommodation to suit all budgets. The city is definitely worth a visit when going to the UK, and can be less touristy than London.
