Before you travel to Edinburgh by train - good to know!

Edinburgh's main attractions are there for all to see: Edinburgh Castle, the grandeur of the Royal Mile, the endless shows of the Edinburgh Festival and the Fringe during August. On the Royal Mile, there's an Edinburgh secret. It's called Gladstone's Land, a restored six storey tenement building restored to its 17th-century original condition by the National Trust. This is an intriguing insight into centuries-old Edinburgh life. Edinburgh has its share of great museums, one of the most unlikely of which is The Museum of Edinburgh, tucked away in a maze of streets in a bright yellow building bristling with stories, with a focus on decorative arts. The Museum of Childhood is a must for the young and young at heart. Edinburgh's efficient tram service is still new to the city and will take visitors from the Royal Mile to most of the city's attractions.
