Edinburgh Culture & History
Capital of Scotland ever since 1437 Edinburgh has continued to grow and grow but is still dominated by the sight of Edinburgh castle that takes up its world-famous skyline – and if you fancy sampling the fresh Scottish air, a trip up to it is definitely worth your while. Today, Edinburgh is bursting with culture, housed inside many museums, galleries, theatres or even just along the countless winding streets.

Edinburgh Travel Info
If walking for 15 minutes doesn’t bother you too much, you’ll be happy to know that most of these sites are kept about this distance from each other and will be your only option if you want to navigate the many meandering medieval streets that make up the city. Buses can also take the strain from your legs and there is always the temptation of getting a taxi down the road!
Edinburgh Hen Ideas
If you like having a good laugh and soaking up the latest of the arts, then planning your hen weekend to run in line with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is an absolute must (let’s just hope the wedding is around this time!) Get the air in your lungs and head up to Edinburgh Castle or just let all the wedding worries float away and head to the Spa.
As you may know, Edinburgh is huge for its comedy with the Fringe Festival being staged every year, so as laughing is nice and healthy, head into Jongleurs. If cocktails are going to be the order of the night, then Edinburgh has more than enough for you, with Bon Vivant, The Raconteur and Dragonfly naming 3 from a choice that is impossible to make your way through on a weekend. (You’ll just have to come again and again and again).
