Best Churches and Graveyards in Old Town

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Edinburgh team

Here are a handful of chuches in Edinburgh to visit. All are in walking distance to each other except for Roslyn Chapel which is approx 7 miles outside of the city centre.

Through Edinburgh's long history, churches and graveyards have played an equally important role in the city, and can be found wherever people have lived and died in the city. The graveyards offer a more interesting alternative to the city's parks, as they are charming and also introspective areas that one can visit in Edinburgh. Greyfriars Kirk inspired one budding author rather significantly, as the grave of Harry Potter will attest!
