Edinburgh is a treasure trove of fascinating architecture and stunning sights. The New Town is adjacent to Princes Street and is a planned Georgian development, whilst the Old Town starts at the Royal Mile and gives an insight to a more historic side of Scotland’s Capital. Both sides of the city offer plenty of things to do, and you can relax into boutique shopping, catch a show at one of the many theatres or simply watch the world go by in the stunning surroundings of Princes Street Gardens.
