The train from London's King's Cross Station whizzes you due North passing through the Midlands with its canals and market towns, past old mill towns built during the Industrial Revolution and skirting England's East coast.

Right by the station you can board the open-top sightseeing bus where you will get a bird's eye view of this majestic city. The hop-on hop-off ticket allows you the freedom to leave and re-join the bus as often as you like. Frequent departures throughout the day mean you have total flexibility to plan your day the way YOU choose!

You will see all the main sights, attractions and landmarks of this lovely City, including the Old Town quarter, the Scotch Whisky Heritage Center, the gloriously intricate Scott Monument decorated with 64 statues of characters from Walter Scott's novels, the Palace of Holyrood House where state ceremonies and official entertaining take place when the Queen is in Scotland (though it has its own murderous history!), and the brand new Scottish Parliament Building. You might want to wander through the cobbled City center streets, visit St Giles's Kirk or John Knox's House or stroll along Princes Street checking out the tartan, whisky and shortbread's that have made Scotland famous.

Your tour includes tickets to Edinburgh Castle where you can live like a King for a day. The Royal apartments include a tiny room in which Mary, Queen of Scots gave birth to the boy who was to become King of Scotland and England upon the death of Queen Elizabeth in 1603. The dazzling Scottish Crown Jewels are also on view in this Castle perched on an extinct volcano with spectacular views across the City and beyond.
