A city of rich culture and heritage, Edinburgh, located in the southeast of Scotland and the capital of Scotland, is the country’s second largest city. It is a city full of splendor, making it one of the UK’s most beautiful cities, boasting famous landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle and St Giles’ Cathedral.
Edinburgh can be difficult to navigate by car due to a difficult one way system, especially in the Old Town; however, car rental is possible at many outlets around the city and ideal for visiting outlying attractions. It is perhaps advised that to get a real feel of Edinburgh, one should explore on foot, so as to get a real feel of the medieval vibe of the city.
Edinburgh is well renowned for its numerous festivals, most famously the Edinburgh International Festival, which later spawned a series of smaller festivals including; the Edinburgh Book Festival and the Edge Festival. They can all be easily accessed by cheap car hire in Edinburgh.
Probably the best way to see Edinburgh is to purchase an Edinburgh Pass. This allows access to 27 of Edinburgh’s attractions as well as other benefits such as restaurant offers and a guide book. While it also includes free usage of public transport, cheap car hire in Edinburgh is widely available and a viable mode of transport.
Other places of interest include the impressive Murrayfield Stadium, shopping as good as anywhere else in the UK, and many delightful museums and galleries. Edinburgh is clearly one of the UK’s finest cities.
