Culture capital Edinburgh is a compact and historic city, with a population of just under 450,000, and rightly famous for its massive contribution to European culture in the 18th and 19th centuries that earned it the title “The Athens of the North”. Edinburgh residents from this period include writers Robert Louis Stevenson (author of “Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde”), Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes) and political economist Adam Smith. Edinburgh has over 4,500 listed buildings and its medieval Old Town and Georgian-era New Town are UNESCO World Heritage sites.
“Auld Reekie” chic… Edinburgh, or “Auld Reekie” as the locals call it, is one of Europe’s most elegant cities with a contemporary, urban edge. Edinburgh offers cutting edge shopping, a diverse night scene and a quality of life unrivalled by any city in Britain. Edinburgh’s suburbs have also enjoyed a new lease of life, characterised by the Leith docks area (setting for Irvine Welsh’s “Trainspotting” novel and the blockbuster film starring Ewan McGregor). Leith is now an essential Edinburgh attraction in itself, with a superb range of restaurants and cosmopolitan feel, whilst retaining its close-knit community spirit. Yet no matter which area you prefer – our list of hotels, hostels, apartments and b&b’s includes cheap accommodation options throughout the city. Welcome to Edinburgh!
