Attracting nearly 12 million visitors a year, Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital seamlessly blends ancient with modern living. Examples are dotted throughout the city from the new Scottish Parliament building to the imposing Edinburgh Castle that sits high on the hilltop commanding every visitor’s attention. Most people who book a flight to Edinburgh make sure and book a tour of the castle well in advance to beat the crowds

It may sound ironic that an ancient city with its winding medieval streets and gothic architecture would be one of the liveliest cities in Europe. Not only does it have a buzzing nightlife scene but every August four festivals including the world’s largest, “the Fringe”, take place there transforming the city into one big celebration. Beyond the city walls, visitors can explore the rural area of the Lothians: East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian. All three areas provide a relaxing break to the hustle and bustle of modern day life. Midlothian is probably the most visited thanks to its Rosslyn Chapel being featured in the recent Da Vinci Code film. Fans of the movie who are booking flights to Edinburgh should plan a stop to Midlothian as part of their visit.

When is the best time to fly to Edinburgh?

Peak Season:

Edinburgh has up to six major arts festivals in August, and flights to Edinburgh get booked up very quickly. July and August are further inundated with visitors when the British schools are on holiday. For this time of year, reserve your hotels and event tickets well in advance.

Hogmanay, the New Year celebration, is also a holiday that requires advance reservations.

Off Season:

The winter months can be very harsh. The weeks following Hogmanay to Easter are low-season. Some tourist attractions close between November and Easter.

Shoulder Season:

The “in-between” months of May-June and September-October (with the exception of the half-term school holidays) are shoulder season when visitors can enjoy mild weather, uncrowded attractions and lower hotel rates.

Getting around Edinburgh

Bring some sturdy shoes with you to Edinburgh. Walking is the best way to explore and your feet will thank you while you trip over the cobblestone streets. Biking is popular as well. If you can get past the ups and downs of the hills, there are plenty of bike paths and lanes to pedal on. It shouldn’t take you more than half an hour to get anywhere. Buses are extremely efficient. They blanket the city and there’s a night bus service if you’re out late. Make sure you have exact change on you for a bus ticket, or purchase a day ticket if you’re planning on riding around all day. Sightseeing hop-on, hop-off buses offer guided tours and stop at major attractions.
