If you enjoy a bit of retail therapy, then the Royal Mile is host to many shops and restaurants as well as plenty more places to visit including the Palace of Holyrood and the Scottish Story Telling Center.
For those visiting with children and for animal lovers of all ages, there is Edinburgh Zoo, home to the only Giant Pandas in the UK, as well as monkeys, rhinos, lions and the world-renowned Bundongo trail.

The zoo is perfectly situated next to the newly refurbished Holiday Inn Edinburgh, this also offers easy access to and from the airport for those who are visiting via the city by plane.
With so much to see and do it’s a great place to make a visit for a weekend or even longer, whether with children, as a couple or with friends.
