1 – Edinburgh Castle
Edinburgh Castle is a famous fortress that dominates the skyline of the capital of Scotland. Located on Castle Rock, this castle is the longest inhabited site in the UK. It is also a military site and Scotland’s most visited paid attraction. It’s a beautiful historical site, definitely worth a visit!
The entrance costs £17.50 online or £19.50 on site. I’d recommend booking online as soon as you can. Regardless of the £2 saving an online booking provide, you will get more available visit slots and will be able to organise your trip better. Also, you won’t have to wait as much at the entrance of the castle. The queue to get it can be very long.
Inside, you will enjoy the castle, the chapel, royal jewels and a wonderful view of Edinburgh.
