Edinburgh World Heritage Trail

World Heritage Edinburgh Walking Trail

City walking holidays are more popular than you may think and this trail of the eastern “New Town” of Edinburgh begins here at Parliament House Hotel! Our Heritage Edinburgh Walking Trail invites you to explore some of the hidden gems of the World Heritage Site often missed by visitors. It also reveals stunning panoramic views over Edinburgh Castle and Old Town en route. 

This particular trail can be done if you are on walking holiday in Scotland or simply visiting Edinburgh for a day trip. Our Heritage Edinburgh walking tour takes around one hour, with a twenty-minute additional option offered.

As you leave the hotel, pause to view the attractive but contrasting architecture which forms our historic building.  Our hotel on Calton Hill in Edinburgh carries some history in itself!
