About City

Edinburgh is Scotland’s capital city. It is well-known for its heritage, culture and festivals. Take a long walk around the centre to discover the World Heritage Sites of the Old Town and New Town, and also all the area’s museums and galleries. Then stop for a delightful food made from fresh Scottish produce before heading out to take in one of Edinburgh’s many events — including the famous summer festivals of culture or the Winter Festivals of music, light and celebrations. Take a themed tour of the Old Town and uncover its unique atmosphere, formed by centuries of human inhabitation.

Edinburgh is drained by the river named the Water of Leith, which rises at the Colzium Springs in the Pentland Hills and runs for 29 kilometres (18 mi) through the south and west of the city, emptying into the Firth of Forth at Leith The nearest the river gets to the city centre is at Dean Village on the north-western edge of the New Town, where a deep gorge is spanned by Thomas Telford’s Dean Bridge, built in 1832 for the road to Queensferry. The Water of Leith Walkway is a mixed use trail that follows the course of the river for 19.6 kilometres (12.2 mi) from Balerno to Leith. The longest established of these festivals is the Edinburgh International Festival, which was first held in 1947 and consists mainly of a programme of highprofile theatre productions and classical music performances, featuring international directors, conductors theatre companies and orchestras
