Places to Stay
  • Overview

    Edinburgh is Scotland’s beautiful capital, and award winning cultural destination. It is a great place to visit at any time of the year thanks to the many different landscapes available to enjoy, from the stunning coastal beaches, to the encapsulating historic skylines. There is plenty to see and do in the city thanks to its rich combination of venues and activities which offer tradition and history as well as amenities which are contemporary and lively.

    School trips to Edinburgh are particularly poignant for those studying art or history. It has two main districts, the Old Town which houses the breath-taking medieval fortress, and the neoclassical New Town, featuring post 18th century European urban architecture.

    There are many potential school activities to enjoy. The National War Museum depicts over 400 years of Scottish military experience, and it is set in the wonderful setting of Edinburgh Castle. Alternatively the Edinburgh Dungeons will provide a unique and memorable experience.

    If you’re lucky enough to have extended school trips to Edinburgh, there is plenty more to keep young minds stimulated: The Edinburgh Treasure Trail, Museum of Childhood, The Imagination Workshop and even Edinburgh Zoo.

    Choosing school trips to Edinburgh really does offer inspiration, fun and of course education. Enabling school children of all ages to see, hear and experience some of the most important historic artifacts, will mean a brilliant excursion and the most memorable educational lesson.

  • Reasons to Visit
    1. National Galleries of Scotland

      The three magnificent galleries in Edinburgh are located on three sites, each home to special exhibitions and different parts of the national collection of fine art. The collection is free to the public, open daily and amongst the best in the world. What's awaiting you? Masterpieces from the early Renaissance to the present day by some of the most important artists in history, as well as portraits of great Scots. You will also find special exhibitions, inspiring activities and events, and bustling cafés and shops.

    2. Edinburgh Castle

      Perched on an extinct volcano, this instantly recognisable fortress is a powerful national symbol and part of Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site. Its story is Scotland's story. Experienced guides with a great knowledge and understanding of the castle look forward to sharing their stories with you.

    3. Holyroodhouse

      The Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence in Scotland of Her Majesty The Queen, stands at the end of Edinburgh's Royal Mile against the spectacular backdrop of Arthur's Seat. This fine baroque palace is closely associated with Scotland's rich history. The Palace is perhaps best known as the home of Mary, Queen of Scots, and as the setting for many of the dramatic episodes in her turbulent reign.
