The city also has a good network of public transport, and there are always taxis if you need them. Edinburgh is a unique city and ideally suited to visitors. It is steeped in history, and we have so much to see and do that you will be spoiled for choice.

An important thing to know about Edinburgh city centre is that it is a town of two halves, old and new. The medieval Old Town grew up around the Royal Mile and many of the buildings date back to those times. As the population increased the wealthier residents increasingly wanted to escape the noisy and crowded accommodation and the New Town was developed with itas beautiful neo-classical architecture and wide streets. The gaps between the Old and New Town filled over time and the result is the eclectic and fascinating mixture of architecture you can see today.
Don't forget to look up as you go about the city, you'll be amazed by the details on the buildings!
