 A day in Edinburgh- our suggestion 

Arthur’s seat hike 

For great panoramic views of the city, climb the extinct volcano. In mythology, they say that King’s Arthur castle, Camelot, was located right at the base of the hill. 

Visit Edinburgh Castle  

Dominating Edinburgh’s horizon from the Castle Rock, Edinburgh Castle is definitely a must see. 

Eat at The Milk Café  

After you visited the castle and climbed that hill, you must be hungry. The Milk Café, the locals favorite, offers you a great selection of breakfast and lunch.  

Walk along the Union Canal 

Running from Falkirk to Edinburgh, the canal was opened in 1822, with the purpose of bringing coal to the capital. 

Sleep at Novotel Edinburgh Park 

Before taking off, get some good rest at Novotel. Affordable prices, great customer service and comfortable rooms.
