Welcome to Edinburgh
Fondly known as Auld Reekie, which means 'Old Smokey' in Scots, the Scottish capital is one of the most memorable and unique cities in all of Europe.
A sense of history is around every corner of this beautiful city. Underground vaults and hidden passageways, relics of construction from a bygone era, are located in and around its historic town centre, known as 'Old Town'.
Visitors and locals pack the narrow cobbled alleyways of Old Town, the medieval heart of Edinburgh filled with centuries-old buildings. Explore the traditional pubs, charming stores and casual eateries that line the 'Royal Mile', a historic street cutting through the heart of the city, and visit St Giles' Cathedral, the 900-year old religious focal point of the city.
