City of Edinburgh Weekend Day Trip

Glossop Road entrance to Bar One • 2 November - 4 November, 8am

Join us for a weekend away to the beautiful Scottish City of Edinburgh! This three day and two night stay will allow you to really soak up the sights of Edinburgh. Included in the price of your ticket is return coach travel from Sheffield, Dinner, Bed & Breakfast in The Britannia Hotel, and the choice of either a single room, twin room, or double room. Edinburgh has a unique blend of culture, sophistication and architecture, plus it’s a remarkable location. It is an extraordinary city and well worth a visit! A World Heritage Site, Edinburgh is one of Europe's finest medieval cities – the jumbled streets of the old town are great fun to explore. Other attractions include Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Palace of Holyroodhouse, and The Royal Mile – a captivating street that links these sights together. Also waiting to be discovered are masses of pubs, shops and restaurants – all crammed into the city centre.
