Perched high on an ex-volcanic rock, in the heart of the City, Edinburgh Castle can be seen clearly from the surrounding area – it’s even clearly visible to the vast majority of tourists who fly into Edinburgh Airport too.
Once you arrive in Edinburgh, its imposing position just begs you visit, that’s why – for another year – Edinburgh Castle is Scotland’s most popular paid visitor attraction. In 2016, over 1.5million visitors walked up Castle Hill and entered through the Castle gates to explore its delights as a tourist attraction.
The Castle has dominated the Edinburgh skyline for centuries and is now part of the Capital’s World Heritage Sites of the Old and New Towns. As a mighty defender to the Scottish Nation this landmark has withstood countless sieges since the 12th Century. Today the walls protect hundreds of cultural treasures including the nation’s crown jewels plus the National War Museum. Inside there are also gift shops plus cafes and restaurants for that all important refreshment stop. It is also home to the One O’clock Gun which, you have guessed it, is fired every day at 1pm. The sound of the blast ricocheting off the surrounding buildings has been a time indicator for Edinburgh residents and businesses for years. Every year, the Royal Military Tattoo takes over the Castle esplanade for the whole of August and with up to two shows per day, this spectacular show should be on everyone’s travel bucket list.
As you can imagine, tickets to explore inside the Castle are in high demand – particularly at weekends, school holiday times and during the summer. The queue to buy tickets can sometimes be 200m long! That’s why CityXplora have teamed up with Historic Scotland and are offering you the chance to buy tickets online, before you get there.
