Scotland's capital has something for everyone, with so much to see and do a weekend break or city break is simply not long enough. To this end, the Edinburgh Inspiring Capital website has been created as the official introduction to the Edinburgh City Region.

There are plenty of educational attractions such as Dynamic EarthThe Museum of Scotland, The museum of Childhood and lots of galleries to stroll around.  For those with a family a visit to Edinburgh Zoo should not be missed.

Anybody requiring a little retail therapy are bound to find something on Edinburgh's Princes Street with landmark department stores such a Jenners, John Lewis, House of Fraser.  For more up market shopping George Street has it all.  With Harvey Nichols presiding at one end and many shops such as Cruise, Pink, Whistles, Louis Vuitton, Hamilton & Inches and Mappin & Webb lining the street.

Edinburgh wouldn't be Edinburgh with out its bustling nightlife.  With restaurants from all around the world you are truly spoilt for choice.  Bars and clubs are in an abundance, from the up market, after work watering holes of George Street to the more raucous Theme Bars of the Grassmarket & Cowgate.  There is something for everyone without a doubt.  Most of Edinburgh's clubs are open till 3am with an extended license till 5am for those visiting the world famous Edinburgh Festival.

Our superb location allows guests easy access to Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, The Scottish Parliament,
