Attractions

Free attractions and days out in Edinburgh

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.

The National Museum of Scotland

Something for everyone to see, their collection is incredibly vast. Even the architecture on its own is something to keep you amazed and entertained for quite some time...and best of all it's free entry!
