London Travel Agency will lead you down the atmospheric Royal Mile past the house of John Knox, the fiery 17th –century preacher. We’ll either avoid or enter the fudge shops, at your whim. At the bottom of the hill sits Holyrood Palace, with its 16th-century Royal apartments, home to Mary Queen of Scots and still used for State entertaining. Dominating the city skyline at the head of the Old Town, Edinburgh Castle expresses Scotland’s heritage and is the venue for the world-famous Tattoo with military bands, trained animals, folk dancing and displays from all over the world. Take a break and shop on Princes Street with its Walter Scott memorial. Or explore the pubs, restaurants clubs and stunning Georgian architecture of the New Town, which inspired Edinburgh to dub itself “the Athens of the North”.
