1 review of Tourist Information Centre

A beautiful view

The tourist office of Edinburgh and the Lothians sits on Prince Street, one of the busiest streets in the Scottish capital. Besides a large hotel, there is an airy plaza where you have a beautiful view of the castle and the North Bridge, and this is where you'll find the tourist office. You can get a map of the city to help you find your way around, and see where the boundaries lie between the two parts of the city, which are known as Old Town and New Town. Old Town is, logically enough, the place where you'll find the medieval castle, the Royal Mile and the cathedral, all the oldest buildings in Edinburgh that go back many centuries, but New Town isn't particularly young, either.
