Citylife Weekend Trip to Edinburgh

from £139.00


Join Citylife and other internationals from across the UK as we explore the beating heart of Scotland.

Edinburgh is one of the most popular cities in the United Kingdom with a few million visitors every year. It is Scotland’s compact, hilly capital. It has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings.

The Athens of the North, an 18th-century Edinburgh nickname dreamed up by the great thinkers of the Scottish Enlightenment, is a city of high culture and lofty ideals, of art and literature, philosophy and science. It is here that each summer the world’s biggest arts festival rises, phoenix-like, from the ashes of last year’s rave reviews and broken box-office records to produce yet another string of superlatives. And it is here, beneath the Greek temples of Calton Hill – Edinburgh’s acropolis – that the Scottish parliament sits again after a 300-year absence.

Arthur’s Seat is the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh and is located at the highest point in Holyrood Park. It is a dormant volcano which gives incredible views of the city. It sits at 251 m above sea level and is a must-visit spot for anyone traveling to Edinburgh.
