Description

It's hardly surprising the city that inspired Harry Potter has a wee bit of magic to it. Discover Edinburgh's breathtaking Gothic atmosphere (and age-old charm) with a guided walking tour of the fabled Royal Mile and a visit to the National Museum of Scotland. A local guide will regale you with tales of rebellion, royal intrigue, and murrrrder, as you explore Scotland's cultural riches and hidden history.

With its grandiose hilltop castle overlooking a sweeping valley that splits the city in two, and moody Gothic architecture looming overhead, Edinburgh is a city like no other. Discover the magical ambience and fascinating history of the Scottish capital, with this walking tour of the famous Royal Mile and the National Museum of Scotland.

Your guide will lead you from one jaw-dropping locale to the next, pointing out the city's secret spots and sharing its darkest historical stories. You'll pass by steep winding streets, ominous cathedrals spires, and some of the best shops, bars and restaurants in the UK.

When you're done sightseeing, the adventure continues inside the National Museum of Scotland. Marvel at ancient wonders and treasures from around the world and Scotland, in an almost endless array of galleries and exhibitions.

See a full T-Rex skeleton, the Millennium Clock, Dolly the world's first cloned sheep, and much more! A hot cup of tea/coffee and a freshly baked scone will be waiting for you in the museum cafe afterwards.
