Take time to discover the atmospheric ‘closes’ or alleys running rib-like off the backbone of the Mile. There is also a good choice of pubs, restaurants and teashops – so it’s easy to find refreshments while exploring.

In the evening, we take our seats for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo (admission included). The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo draws together a host of creative talent from four continents.

This includes a minimum of 5 steps to reach the front row seats followed by 3 more steps per row to the seating higher up in the stands.
