With free entry to many galleries, museums and attractions, you could easily fill your days in Edinburgh without spending a penny. And that's even before you've taken in the city's scenic outdoor spaces and some of its world-class festivals for free too.
You could fill a whole week with free things to do in Edinburgh. Start with the world-class attractions of the National Museum of Scotland, Scottish National Galleries and St Giles Cathedral. Go behind the scenes with Edinburgh's film locations, explore a few hidden gems or sit back and watch the world go by from one of the parks and gardens, including the magical Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
