Discover something new with our Edinburgh Itineraries

Our itineraries feature amazing Edinburgh attractions, landmarks and activities. Such as the ancient Edinburgh Castle, the elegant Georgian New Town and the regal Royal Yacht Britannia.

We highly recommend following our bespoke walking trail, which was created especially for us by Edinburgh World Heritage. This route takes around an hour to complete and starts right here at Parliament House Hotel. It highlights some of the hidden gems on our doorstep, which visitors often overlook or miss.

If you have a few days to spend, we have a one, two or three-day city sightseeing itinerary, which covers the New Town, Old Town, Leith and beyond. Helping you make the most of your Edinburgh short break.

Or, if you’ve seen all the usual sights and you want to find somewhere new and different, why not try one of our themed itineraries? For example, food and drink or outdoor adventure? We plan to add more of these in the near future, so keep checking back for updates. You can also view our comprehensive list of Edinburgh attractions, which is growing all the time too!

Of course, our team is always on hand if you need any further advice on things to do during your stay. Simply ask at reception, or contact us before you arrive. We are always happy to share our local tips and recommendations.

So, take a look at our special offers and book your city sightseeing break today! Use our itineraries to inspire you and please get in touch if you need any help.
