Edinburgh, Scotland’s famous capital, has everything you want in a city. Historic
streets, a castle, extinct volcanoes AND a seaside. You’ve seen all of this on the
postcards. But, did you know that the iconic skyline, the striking contrast between
the Old and New Towns, is actually protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site?
Edinburgh Doors Open Days gives you the opportunity to peek behind the scenes
in many of these buildings - to learn about their (often, very long) history, as well as
what they’re used for today.
Whether you’re interested in architecture, community
stories or are just plain nosy, there’s something for you.
