Cheap flights to Edinburgh, UK

If you’ve never visited now’s the time to take a cheap flight to Edinburgh and explore this wonderful city. Edinburgh is best approached from the west at sunset – so as to witness the full glory of the Castle thrusting up from out of its surroundings with Arthur’s Seat looming behind it. Past the obligatory peripheral housing of any modern city, the inner city is another divided self. The Old Town sprawls, higgledy-piggledy behind the castle, with ancient taverns snuggling cosily in its tiny alleys under the feet of towering tenements. The Georgian New Town is laid out square and serviceable in the Castle’s shadow, the one-time banking halls of its main street new-made as drinking halls. Edinburgh’s citizens, behind their own bluff exteriors, are a cosmopolitan bunch, who have a warmth and a carefully controlled tendency towards celebration.

Take a flight to Edinburgh and you’ll be there in no time. A great destination for a weekend break be it with friends or a loved one. For whiskey lovers there’s the Scotch Whiskey Experience which includes a journey through time as you’re taken on a tour of the Whiskey making process. If being spooked is your thing there’s plenty of ghost tours to choose from, wander the streets of Edinburgh with your ghoulish guide, you’re sure for a memorable time!
