Fondly known as Auld Reekie, which means 'Old Smokey' in Scots, the Scottish capital is one of the most memorable and unique cities in all of Europe.

A sense of history is around every corner of this beautiful city. Underground vaults and hidden passageways, relics of construction from a bygone era, are located in and around its historic town centre, known as 'Old Town'.

Visitors and locals pack the narrow-cobbled alleyways of Old Town, the medieval heart of Edinburgh filled with centuries-old buildings. Explore the traditional pubs, charming stores and casual eateries that line the 'Royal Mile', a historic street cutting through the heart of the city, and visit St Giles' Cathedral, the 900-year old religious focal point of the city.

Explore the higgledy-piggledy medieval streets and courtyards of Old Town, admire the beautiful Georgian architecture found in New Town or head to Carlton Hill for stunning panoramic views of the city. Ascend Castle Hill as you walk in the footsteps of famous Scottish kings and queens and see the 'Stone of Destiny' - a sacred object that has been used for centuries in the coronation of Scottish monarchs. Enjoy last minute shopping, visit the attractions on your "must-see" list or stroll through the city centre - it's your day!

Your Rail Tour includes entrance to the mighty Edinburgh Castle, a 1,100-year-old fortress built on Castle Rock, a long-extinct volcano. Explore the long, bloody history of the castle, from its time as a military fortress, royal residence and prison of war.
