Edinburgh Is one of the most popular cities to visit in the United Kingdom and it’s easy to see why! The UNESCO world heritage site has a beautiful medieval old town with its cobbled streets and historic buildings. It has countless museums, beautiful scenic parks, vibrant nightlife and friendly locals. However with all these attractions, it can also be expensive! Whilst some attractions are unavoidably expensive, there are many free things to do as well.
Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital city and is one of the most visited cities in Great Britain. It’s easy to see why with its medieval old town and elegant Georgian new town as well as the endless amount of gardens and public spaces to explore. Edinburgh is also a hilly city with the Edinburgh castle perched up at one end and Calton hill with its many monuments at the other. Above these is also the imposing peak of Arthur’s seat looking down towards Holyrood House. From here you can head up and join many others watching the sun go down over this fabulous city!
Kenilworth Castle is not just any castle, it is where Queen Elisabeth I, the Virgin Queen had a love affair.To be honest before visiting this castle I had no idea about the long history that went with it. However one step into Kenilworth and your mind is transported back in time. The site is run wonderfully, with knowledgeable English Heritage guides and staff who are always available for an informative chat about anything to do with the castle.
