EDINBURGH



From the moment you arrive, Edinburgh's stunning skyline and magnificent architecture are captivating. The castle clings dramatically to its rock as the ancient buildings of the Royal Mile tumble down the spine of the hill to the splendid Palace of Holyroodhouse. Across the green expanse of Princes Street Gardens lies the graceful Georgian New Town waiting to be explored.

Variety is the spice of Edinburgh life. Within quarter of a mile you can leave bustling Princes Street for an enchanting riverside walk from Dean Village. Or, you could move from the Royal Mile to explore Arthur's Seat, the craggy extinct volcano that looms over the city. Take a trip to Edinburgh's waterfront at Leith and you're amongst some of Scotland's most fashionable bars and restaurants - a great place to hunt for your favourite malt whisky. Leith also its place in history; it was on Leith links that Mary, Queen of Scots, reputedly practiced her swing in 1567.

The Edinburgh International Festival is very special and brings the world to the city. Its spirit lasts the whole year and is part of the city's rich tradition in the performing and visual arts.

History, culture, architecture; the more you explore, the more this great city rewards you. "Every visitor will find their own Edinburgh" remarks the current Lonely Planet Guide to Britain. "All that can be said with certainty is that they will never forget it."

Bonfire Night
5 November

On 5th November 1605, soldiers discovered a man called Guy Fawkes in a cellar under the Houses of Parliament. With him were at least twenty barrels of gunpowder. Guy Fawkes was arrested and tortured. At last he gave way and told his torturers about a plot to blow up Parliament together with the king, James I, his ministers and Members of Parliament.

In 1606 Parliament agreed to make 5th November a day of public thanksgiving and ever since then the day has been celebrated with fireworks and bonfires.

State Opening of Parliament
November

The Queen formally opens the new session of Parliament each year. Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh she travels in the State Coach to the Palace of Westminster. Before the royal procession sets out, a detachment of the Yeomen of the Guard (dating from 1485, they are the oldest of the royal bodyguards) search the cellars of the Houses of Parliament. This tradition dates back to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, when Guy Fawkes was arrested whilst preparing to blow up Parliament. Today the Yeomen are reinforced by police in their search.
