Arrive in Edinburgh Airport after your overnight flight from the United States. Enjoy a private transfer to your Hotel. “Edinburgh,” said the writer Robert Louis Stevenson “is what Paris ought to be.” Its magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty tenements of its medieval Old Town to the grace and geometric precision of the Georgian New Town. Settle into your new surroundings and enjoy a leisurely walk through this vibrant city. Take time to stroll down the Royal Mile, a street lined with shops, pubs and restaurants. Stay 2-nights at Channings Hotel.
After breakfast, visit Edinburgh Castle and see the Scottish Crown Jewels and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Founded as a monastery in 1128, the Palace of Holyrood House in Edinburgh is The Queen’s official residence in Scotland. Situated at the end of the Royal Mile, the Palace of Holyrood House is closely associated with Scotland’s turbulent past, including Mary, Queen of Scots, who lived here between 1561 and 1567. We recommend taking a ‘Hop on, Hop off’ bus tour of the city, it’s a fantastic way to get around and see all the best sights!
