What to Do In Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of Europe's capital cities and as such has much to offer visitors. The fact that Scotland is soon to vote on the issue of independence makes it all the more interesting and could see more visitors journeying there this year.
 
Whether or not Scotland will remain a part of the United Kingdom or follow a path which leads to full independence may have strange implications - for instance, travellers across the border from England may need to show their passports depending on how the future of both parties lies when it comes to the Schengen Agreement which governs free travel between European countries.
 
It would be quite a shock for people from both sides to have to go through passport control to cross the border, and it would be even stranger if an independent Scotland were to join the Eurozone.
 
So taking all this into account maybe now is the time to visit Edinburgh, the historic capital city of Scotland.
 
Flying to Edinburgh
 
Flying into Edinburgh airport is easier than ever, with connections from all over the UK and further afield. Flights to Edinburgh from a range of airports mean that the city is on the map for ease of access from many major destinations.
 
The attractions of one of the grandest cities in Britain are numerous and the city centre is compact and easily navigated with all the major attractions within easy reach of each other.
 
Events
 
After landing at Edinburgh airport it is a short cab or train ride into the centre of the city where many world famous cultural events take place. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is an annual event which sees visitors from all over the world flock to the city. It is the largest arts festival anywhere on earth and in 2011 over 40,000 performances at nearly 300 different venues was recorded.
 
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is held every August and features spectacular displays by military bands. The traditional Scots pipers and drummers go through their expertly drilled paces in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle which dominates the skyline from its imposing hilltop location overlooking the city.
 
However, the most famous of all events in Edinburgh is probably the annual New Year's Eve celebrations, also known as Hogmanay. On January 31st each year the centre of the city has traditionally been the place where generations of people have gathered to cheer 'The Bells' which signify the start of the New Year.
