History of Edinburgh and Scotland

An ancient Celtic land of history and legend, Edinburgh became the capital of Scotland and is world known for its heritage, its history and as a cultural stage. The city offers a juxtaposition of two UNESCO-listed sites with the Old Town, the birthplace of the city with Hollyrood at its feet and the medieval fortress at its summit; and the New Town, a jewel of Georgian new-classicism from the 18th century.

Fancy a gateway to the city? We offer you have a range of guided tours and interractive activities to help you discover or rediscover the history of Scotland's capital and unlock its secrets
