Explore the capital of Scotland with a City Sightseeing hop on hop off bus tour! Edinburgh has it all, from it’s historic locations including Edinburgh Castle and John Knox’ House, to it’s up-and-coming vibrant areas such as the Grassmarket.
Begin the tour at Waverley Bridge, where you’ll immediately be surrounded by popular high-street retailers and eateries. The tour will continue to locations including the Grassmarket, another great spot for tourists to explore the shops or stop for a bite to eat. If you’re looking for something to do during the evening, we highly recommend returning to the Grassmarket – it’s one of Edinburgh’s most lively areas of a night time.
Whilst touring Edinburgh, discovering the famous Edinburgh Castle is a must! Hop-off at Stop 5 and marvel at the magnificent architecture that dominates Edinburgh’s skyline. Another fascinating attraction is the National Museum of Scotland, which has previously been listed as a Top 10 UK Visitor Attraction – so it’s well worth a visit!
Continue exploring the history of Edinburgh at John Knox’ House at Stop 8 – this is the real former home of the legendary protestant from the 16th century.
Another notable attraction in Scotland’s Capital is the Palace of Holyroodhouse. From the open-top deck, you will have the most amazing panoramic views of Queen Elizabeth II’s official residence.
