Edinburgh’s Best Attractions And Places To Visit

Overlooking one of the loveliest private gardens in Edinburgh, Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel is positioned perfectly: just close enough to take advantage of the city’s historic attractions, art, and culture, yet just far enough from the well-trodden tourist track. Like the hotel itself, its location—the New Town—has a chic, cosmopolitan vibe, with buzzy new cocktail bars, vibrant restaurants, and great shopping. Yet wherever you roam, you’ll still be able to soak in views of the iconic Edinburgh Castle and the Old Town on the hillside above. It’s a visual reminder that Edinburgh is a true study in contrasts: a city where a storied past collides with an energetic present, and a city where you’ll never tire of things to do.
