Written on January 18, 2021

What is the best way to spend 2 hours in Edinburgh?

If you only have a few hours in Scotland’s capital city, then you certainly want to make the most of it! We’re a bit biased, but we have to say that the best way to spend 2 hours in Edinburgh is with a walking tour. Of course, your timeframe may not match up with a walking tour or you may prefer to strike out on your own. So we want to offer a few tips to make the most of your brief time in enchanting Edinburgh, whether you join us at Invisible Cities or not.

What to See in 2 Hours in Edinburgh

If you only have two hours, then you certainly don’t want to waste any time wandering around lost or not knowing where to go! There are different areas of Edinburgh that may interest you based on your preferences.

Learn the History of Edinburgh

To get the quick overview of this historic capital city, you have a few options. First, join our tour of The Royal Mile - From Huts to High Rise. The Royal Mile is a must-see in Edinburgh’s Old Town. It highlights so many significant moments and landmarks in just a short stretch connecting Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood Palace. Along the way, you can see iconic architecture, learn the stories of former residents, and admire the many layers of the city as it has changed over the centuries.

Admire the Art in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is known as The Festival City for its celebrations and festivals throughout the year. From the world’s largest arts festival (the Festival Fringe in August) to the International Film Festival, the International Storytelling Festival, the Jazz Festival and more...Edinburgh certainly appreciates the arts!

Enjoy Edinburgh’s Views and Parks

Edinburgh is a city of hills and many layers, so you don’t have to go far for fantastic views. With just a few hours in Edinburgh, you’ll want to maximise your time and enjoy seeing the city’s beautiful architecture from above. There are a number of ways you can do this.

2. Hike up Arthur’s Seat

So, as you can see, there’s loads you can do in only 2 hours in Edinburgh! Of course, you can’t do everything we mentioned, but if you choose wisely then you’ll really maximise your short visit. And we’re certain you’ll want to come back for more! We would love to welcome you on one of our Edinburgh walking tours, so do reach out and we’ll see if we can accommodate your schedule.
