Explore the traditional pubs, charming stores and casual eateries that line the 'Royal Mile', a historic street cutting through the middle of Old Town, and visit St Giles' Cathedral, the 900-year old religious focal point of the city.

My son and his girlfriend will be visiting the UK over Christmas 2016 and plan to visit Edinburgh as well. I will be recommending Evan Evans tours to them.
