Edinburgh is an inspirational conference destination and one that you can easily discover for yourself.
There can be no doubt that Edinburgh is one of the great Capital cities of the World, and no trip to Scotland would be complete without a stay in the "Athens of the North". A world-leading centre for business, finance and education, and home to the first Scottish Parliament in 300 years, energy and excitement emanates from every corner of Edinburgh.
Cosmopolitan in every sense, Edinburgh is Europe's festival capital. All year round, millions of visitors are drawn to the city for a series of remarkable social and scientific events.
Edinburgh is a city of contrasts, from hills to shore. Steeped in history, yet thoroughly modern. Medieval buildings share the pavements with striking modern structures, centuries old craftsmanship rubs shoulders with cutting edge fashion and the peoples of the world mingle in the city's original pubs and contemporary restaurants to create a truly dynamic capital city.
Its magnificent architecture shifts from the lofty buildings of its medieval Old Town, as they tumble down the spine of the Royal Mile, to the grace of the Georgian New Town. Above it all, in its towering splendour, stands the Castle. Alleyways reveal ancient courtyards and wynds, which open up a new panorama. And yet within this sweeping elegance is a compact city, a bustling city, above all, a city which rewards every visitor.
Every step is a revelation - an alleyway which reveals an ancient courtyard, or a wynd which opens up a new panorama. And yet within this sweeping elegance is a compact city, a bustling city, above all a city which rewards every visitor.
