3 Days / 2 Nights Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival at the airport, pick up and meet and greet. Check in to your hotel and then head out to The Royal Yacht Britannia. Step on board HM The Queen’s former floating Royal residence, where you’ll see the engine room, Rolls Royce’s and state apartments across five decks. After the tour, take some time to explore the Shore in Leith, one of the most fashionable areas to live in Edinburgh. Afterwards head to Princes Street and George Street, the ideal destinations for some retail therapy and spend some time at leisure before dinner and an overnight stay at the hotel.
Day 2: Breakfast then get ahead of the crowds and start your day at Edinburgh Castle when it opens at 9.30am to see the Scottish Crown Jewels and Stone of Destiny. Next Venture to the other end of the Royal Mile and you’ll be in the Canongate and Holyrood area of the Old Town – it dates back over 800 years. You could probably spend days discovering its many nooks, crannies and secret gardens! At the bottom you’ll find the Palace of Holyroodhouse, one of the Royal Residences. Take a tour and see Mary Queen of Scots’ bedchamber and the room where her confidante, David Rizzio, was brutally murdered.
We will finish the day with a dinner in a typical Scottish Pub before heading back to the hotel.
Day 3: Breakfast. Enjoy a morning at leisure before your transfer to the airport.
