Hotel Reservations in Edinburgh
From your luxury hotel in Edinburgh you can easily explore the city's majesty on foot. With its fascinating history, grand architecture, and modern inflection, Edinburgh is distinctively Scottish.
The first of two historic regions in the city center, Old Town is chock full of medieval and Reformation-era architecture. Situated at the west end of the Royal Mile is the most prominent structure in Scotland. Edinburgh Castle built in the 12th century atop a volcanic rock and surrounded by rocky cliffs on three sides. At the midpoint of the Royal Mile is St. Giles' Cathedral. With its characteristic Scottish crown steeple, the High Kirk of Edinburgh is often times referred to as the mother church of Presbyterianism. Continuing east through Canongate you arrive at Abbey Strand. Here stands the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official residence of the monarchy.
On the other side of the city center is New Town, developed during the Georgian era. While this part of town also includes beautiful architectural structures like the Scott Monument, here you will find the contemporary side of Edinburgh. Princes Street in New Town is the place to go for shopping. On the west end of New Town you can peruse the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
For more of Edinburgh, the other areas of the city offer uniqueness in their own right. In Stockbridge you can relax in the Royal Botanic Gardens, In Edinburgh/West you can witness a Penguin Parade at the Edinburg Zoo. And head north along the Water of Leith Walkway for some fish and chips.
