Edinburgh travel tips

1) Join Edinburgh's tumultuous New Year's Eve celebrations in December

Many tourists come to Edinburgh for the Hogmanay New Year's Eve celebration. It is one of the largest New Years' festivals in the world, with music shows and fairs. The air temperature in December is about 0 degrees Celsius, so be sure to take a scarf and a hat with you, and do not deny yourself the pleasure of drinking a hot punch at the fair to keep warm!

2) Visit the National Library in Edinburgh for free to see letters written by Charles Dickens and Walter Scott

The National Library of Edinburgh is a great way to spend time for free and fun. Here you can explore ancient maps or look at clothes, things, and originals of works and letters by Walter Scott, Lord Byron, and Charles Darwin.

3) Try an extraordinary black pudding served for breakfast in many cafes in Edinburgh

Black pudding is not a dessert at all, as you might think. It is made from lard and cereals with the addition of pork or beef blood and spices. This dish is served with a variety of side dishes, from traditional bean stew to fruit cuts. This pudding is one of the most popular breakfast options in Edinburgh.
