18th century however, Scotland was flourishing with the Scottish enlightenment, with Edinburgh one of its key epicentres, becoming a centre for philosophy, medicine and innovation. With this, the city has continued to transform into a bustling capital, and its thriving cosmopolitan feel, with its distinctly Scottish history, tradition and scenery, makes for an exciting and unique modern city that is a must on all travellers’ bucket lists.
Edinburgh is split into a number of districts, however, the city centre itself is made up of the Old Town and New Town. Both parts have so much to offer, with the Old Town being Edinburgh’s historical centre built around the Royal Mile, a long, ancient street leading from Holyrood Palace to Edinburgh Castle. The New Town on the other hand is Georgian in look and feel, with incredible architecture, galleries, restaurants and bars. Both have numerous attractions suiting all tastes.
