What is the best area to stay in Edinburgh?
The capital of Scotland, Edinburgh, is uniquely Scottish through and through, from the atmosphere to the modern and medieval architecture. The city is relatively small in comparison to most other capitals but this in fact makes it very convenient to see the majority of the tourist attractions. The city is simply beautiful in that it mixes the modern era with the medieval times and therefore appeals to all audiences.
The best area to stay in Edinburgh is the Old Town as it is suitably located in the city centre. Here you will find plenty of medieval and 16th century architecture including gothic churches and cathedrals, beautiful palaces, various amazing museums and galleries and of course the imposing castle. The Royal Mile is the famous strip that links most of the attractions and has a great nightlife with many pubs and bars found along it. Shopping is definitely on the cards with many decent markets and shops that have some of the quirkiest and most traditional souvenirs like kilts and whisky. The various ghost walks must be done once to get a thrill or two as the city is one of the most haunted on earth and this area is home to the best hotels and restaurants.
