Edinburgh City Breaks
Cheap Edinburgh city breaks are always in demand. At Co-operative Travel we can offer them at a truly frugal price. Bargain city breaks to Edinburgh take you to a city that is unique, historic and beautiful.
Edinburgh package city breaks in the Old Town place you in an area rich in Reformation architecture (much of the medieval city is underground, as it was simply built on.) However, the medieval street plan has been preserved, with narrow streets and alleys (called closes) where you will find numerous specialist shops, cosy pubs and restaurants serving traditional Scottish fare – as well as spooky tunnel entrances.
Book Edinburgh city breaks here and you’re within easy reach of Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Abbey, located at either end of the Royal Mile. Other attractions include the Law Courts, St Giles’ Cathedral, the creepy Edinburgh Vaults and expansive Holyrood Park.
Many Edinburgh city breaks are booked in the 18th century New Town. Defined by broad thoroughfares like George Street and Princes Street – the city’s main shopping area – the New Town has fine examples of Georgian and Regency architecture.
Charlotte Square was designed by Robert Adam, whose influence can be seen across Edinburgh. A short walk will take you to the charming Princes Gardens, while in the evening there’s a chic lively vibe in the upmarket pubs and nightclubs on George Street.
Unlike some European city breaks, weekend breaks in Edinburgh are rarely too hot – or cold. While it can be quite damp and misty at times, this just makes the city’s tea rooms, pubs and cafes more appealing. However, you can warm up with a brisk walk; Edinburgh city breaks are ideal for those who enjoy hearty meals and healthy exercise, with many lovely hill climbs in the area. The views from Arthur’s Seat (also volcanic) are outstanding.
At Co-operative Travel we can arrange cheap last minute Edinburgh city breaks throughout the year. Whether it’s a short stay over Christmas, or one of our special Edinburgh Festival breaks, we’ll always get you the best deal.
