Edinburgh weekend breaks
Weekend breaks in Edinburgh offer nice compact sightseeing with the popular city areas of Princess Street, Edinburgh Castle, museums and galleries all within a short walk of each other. The Edinburgh panorama from Aurthur's seat includes the Forth Bridges and Holyrood palace, the Queens official residence in Scotland which is open all year apart from during Royal visits. Try an open top bus trip to take in the best of the city sights and it's also well worth a trip out of the city to view the Royal Yacht Britania, for many, a "must do" on any long weekend break in Edinburgh. The pageantry of the Tattoo mixed with the arts and culture of the Fringe make a great mini break during the August Festival period in 2014. This is the busiest time so book holidays well in advance especially if you plan a weekend visit, away from the festival period and out of season there are often good weekend deals going, so check around. When winter comes Princes Street Gardens gets into festive mood as the Edinburgh christmas markets open with stalls, funfair and even an outdoor ice rink! If you think you're up for 2014 Hogmanay breaks, you can go to the Edinburgh New Year (hogmanay) street party, the best in the world!
Edinburgh flights land at Edinburgh (Turnhouse) International Airport which is just a short 25 minute bus trip into Waverly Bridge (city center, just off Princess Street), buses and coaches leave for Edinbrugh every 10 mins.
