Next is the main part of the Royal Mile — High Street. Located at the junction of High Street Royal Mile and The Bridges, Whistlebinkies is arguably the best place to catch live music from up and coming bands in Edinburgh. This is the official festival capital of the world and in August no fewer than six festivals take place.
Table of Contents
These include the Military Tattoo, the Edinburgh Book Festival and the best known of all — the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the largest arts festival in the world. For more information visit the official Edinburgh festivals website as well as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival website. Within the cathedral there are over two hundred memorials honouring different Scots along with a notable collection of stained glass windows. This might be a cliche when it comes to free things to do in cities, but Edinburgh is easily one of the most intriguing cities when it comes to exploring on foot, particularly in the Old Town.
You can easily spend hours walking through lanes and alleys, exploring neighbourhoods like Cowgate and Grassmarket and imagining what this city was like centuries ago. Make sure to put aside a few hours for nothing else other than wandering. This enormous museum has everything from fossils showing evidence of the earliest forms of life, to rich artefact collections representing diverse cultures across the globe. Located at the bottom of the Royal Mile is the award-winning building for the Scottish Royal Parliament.
Tours of the building are free, you just need to book in advance.
