Silversea Luxury Cruises A Edinburgh (Leith)

Rise to the heights of the craggy outcrop of Arthur's Seat, the greatest of the seven mountains surrounding Edinburgh, to survey one of the world's most magical cities from a truly privileged outlook. Few cities can genuinely claim to have it all, but Edinburgh may be one, with its immense artistry, gorgeous architecture and deep contribution to high culture. View more

A cultural, creative and curious place it may be, but the locals are anything but superior, and many a friendly chat and ribbing takes place in the nooks of its flower-draped pubs. Open parks, and the majestic Royal Botanic Gardens - open since 1670 - offer more colour among the wash of pretty Georgian and brick buildings. With such architectural and artistic wealth, it's no surprise that Edinburgh continues to be a city of literature, where the written word is revered above all else. The looming memorial dedicated to Sir Walter Scott symbolises this and is one of the world's largest monuments dedicated to a writer. The Writers' Museum is dedicated to the craft of other Scottish wordsmiths, such as Sir Robert Burns and Robert Louis Stevenson. The old town is a quaint and enchanting place, and Edinburgh's storied literary heritage continues to grow, with J.K. Rowling formulating Harry Potter's magical world in the cute cafes here. Wander the bustling, gas-lamp-lit cobbled streets, and sink into a fairy-tale world of your own, before ascending to Edinburgh Castle – which rises majestically above the city on its volcanic plug perch.

Excursiones en Edinburgh (Leith)

Leisurely Edinburgh and Whiskey (Wheelchair Accessible)

Edinburgh City Drive

Start your tour by meeting your wheelchair accessible van and your tour guide at the Edinburgh cruise dock and head out on a memorable panoramic drive to Downtown Edinburgh. On your way, you will pass by several city highlights including the Royal Botanical Gardens, Fettes College, Stewart Melville College, St. Mary's Episcopalian Cathedral and West End. Your tour guide is eager to share the intriguing history of these places with you as you enjoy your panoramic drive.


Scotch Whisky Experience

Your first stop of the day is the Scotch Whisky Experience. Here, you will have a fun experience that includes an accessible sky barrel ride through the production of Scotch whisky, as well as an introduction to the aromas in whisky. You'll also enjoy a nosing and tasting of two Scotch whiskies (or soft drink) including a pairing with an artisan chocolate.


The Royal Mile

Following this, your tour guide will escort you on a leisurely, accessible stroll down the famous Royal Mile. Among other things, you'll see the Castlehill, the Lawnmarket, St. Giles Cathedral, High Street, Canongate, the Scottish Parliament and the exterior of the Edinburgh Castle and Esplanade.


Royal Yacht Britannia

Next pay a visit to the Royal Yacht Britannia, one of the world's most famous ships. Launched in 1953, the Royal Yacht proudly served Queen and country for forty-four years. During that time Britannia carried The Queen and the Royal Family on 968 official voyages, from the most remote regions of the South Seas to the deepest divides of Antarctica. Today, permanently moored in Leith since her decommissioning in 1997, she provides a fascinating and unique behind-the-scenes view of the Royal family and Britannia's role as a floating palace. The Queen describes the Yacht as the one place where she could truly relax.

See the gleaming engine room, the Duke of Edinburgh's and The Queen's bedrooms, the crew quarters and more during this fascinating visit. Return to your own ship in Leith.
