Description

Tour Edinburgh to your own schedule on the open-top sightseeing bus, and enjoy the on-board commentary that describes the history behind the lively city. Compare Edinburgh's Old Town, where families lived in cramped conditions and rubbish was thrown out of the windows, to the elegant Georgian New Town, with its 3 main streets and square at either end. Hear about the hangings that took place in the Grassmarket as you marvel at the impenetrable Castle Rock above you, and hear about historic attempts to capture Edinburgh Castle. Drive along the Royal Mile, which joins Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Use the 24-hour ticket to hop-on and off as you please. With great visitor attractions, museums, galleries, and restaurants to suit every taste and budget, Edinburgh's got it all! Buses run every 10-20 minutes, making the following loop: Tour Stops: 1. St Andrew Square - Northside 2. Lothian Road 3. Grassmarket 4. Lauriston Place 5. Johnston Terrace 6. Lawnmarket 7. Chambers Street 8. John Knox House 9. Canongate 10. Holyrood 11. Our Dynamic Earth 12. Regent Road 13. Hanover Street 14. Market Street
