Fondly known as Auld Reekie, which means 'Old Smokey' in Scots, the Scottish capital is one of Europe's most memorable cities.
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.
Your Rail Tour includes entrance to the mighty Edinburgh Castle, a 1,100-year-old fortress built on Castle Rock, a long-extinct volcano. Explore the long, bloody history of the castle, from its time as a military fortress, royal residence and prison of war.
