The city is a blend of a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town, with gardens and neoclassical buildings. A historical guide to Edinburgh is a good introduction to the history of the entire nation. It’s home to the Scottish Parliament, some of the best restaurants and bars in the UK, dramatic architecture and vast green spaces. As an Edinburgh local, when I think of Edinburgh, I think of Tollcross, Bruntsfield Links, The Cow Gate, Murrayfield, Waverly Station. Here are a few more must-see places.
