Edinburgh - the City That Keeps on Giving

By: Gill Critchley

The city of Edinburgh has a lot to offer visitors. Whether you're looking for a lively city break, perhaps to experience the famous New Years Eve Hogmanay, a cultural visit or maybe more of a relaxed seasonal trip, then you will find all you want in the city of Edinburgh.

If you are coming to Edinburgh on a short break, you may need to plan another visit as there is so much to keep you entertained in the city, you'll want to return again and again. The best thing is that Edinburgh is packed full of attractions and sights to see which all lie in and around the city centre.

In the Old Town lies the city's most stunning building, its 12th century castle. Continuing the traditional look is the cobbled walkway that leads you to the famed Royal Mile where you will find souvenir shops, museums, pubs and dark alleyways. What better introduction to the city than this?

As well as in the museums and the art galleries, there are also sight-seeing tours with a difference where your guide may have a slightly spookier look than your average guide. With the backdrop of an architecturally fitting scene, the ghost tours in Edinburgh are definitely worth a visit. Even if you're looking for more of a summer break, then you will not be disappointed as there is a port, and a seaside.

In August the Edinburgh Fringe Festival takes place. This is known as the world's biggest arts festival with 2050 shows being registered for the 2007 show. You can expect to find acts such as; stand up comedy, one person performances and revivals of classic plays.

As well as the Fringe Festival, there is also a Film Festival in the city. This is also held in August and includes feature films, short films and retrospectives from UK and international filmmakers. As well as this, well known actors, writers and directors often give talks at the In Person events.

If you are interested in visiting the exciting city then instead of booking yourself into a hotel why not consider apartments in Edinburgh? Apartments offer very good value for money compared to hotels and you will gain more space and your own private area where you can relax with many of the facilities that are on offer at hotels, such as; wifi/broadband, cable TV, laundry facilities and many have car parking spaces available. As well as this, you can choose the style of your apartment, whether you want a traditional Georgian apartment or a purpose built modern property.

With apartments near the Royal Mile, you can make sure you are in a central location for your trip to the city. By visiting edinburgh-holiday-accommodation.co.uk online you can view the properties and get a personal service where a property will be matched to you and your budget as all of the properties shown on the website have been inspected.

If you're not sure where you want to go for your holidaysthis year, why not visit Edinburgh, the city that keeps on giving?
