THE BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN UK
One of Scotland's most attractive cities, the capital city of Edinburgh is also one of the UK's most visited destinations. Popular for its many well-preserved historic buildings, Edinburgh is perhaps best known as the home of the majestic Edinburgh castle.
Perched high above the old city on a rocky promontory, this 13th-century royal fortress includes highlights such as the famous One O'Clock Salute, held daily at Half Moon Battery; the Scottish Crown Jewels in the royal palace; the scotish national war museum; and the famous stone of destiny (the Stone of Scone), only returned to Scotland after being held for 700 years in London.From the castle, it's easy to explore the other most important historic sites in the city, most notably the Old Town's royal mile with its fine architecture, boutique shops, cafés, restaurants, and art galleries, as well as the splendid old palace of holyroodhouse.
