Edinburgh has so much to see and many parts to explore. The perfect city to explore foot also makes hotels in Edinburgh city centre an ideal base. There are two main parts, or districts, that make up the centre of Edinburgh. The clear divide between the two is Princes Street (running east of Castle Rock) South of Princes Street is the `Old Town`. Roughly only 300 yard wide but brimming with history and Scottish heritage this area has maintained its medieval look. Here you`ll find Edinburgh`s most iconic sights like the Castle, St Giles Cathedral, the national museum of Edinburgh and the Royal Mile. North of Princes Street you`ll find the New Town ? albeit well over 200 years old! In the New Town the layout of the streets seem more symmetrical and orderly. Here you can visit the National Gallery of Scotland and also visit various department stores, cafes and restaurants.
