- Experience the Roman Baths
Covered with the natural hot springs, the Roman Bath has more to offer than just underground saunas and plunge pools on display. The excavated areas with elevated walking trails give you a better perspective of the architecture. However, the Romans had a ceiling which prevented the sunlight from penetrating the water. The absence of this ceiling has led to an algae infestation in the springs.
- Trekking on your way to Arthur’s Seat
Arthur’s Seat, an extinct volcano is located in Edinburgh. The volcano last erupted three hundred and fifty years ago and has now been converted into a hiking, walking and climbing trail. The beauty of the path is the fact that it has different scenic views via different routes. We recommend hiking from Holyrood Palace to hike your way to the summit and come back via the walking trail through Salisbury Craig.
- Visit the Houses of Parliament
The House of Parliament and the Palace of Westminster are open for public tours. The request can be raised and after the detailed overview of the tour is provided, you can go ahead with it adhering to the dress codes and security practices. You can attend debates, witness the Palace of Westminster in all its glory during a walk and enjoy the afternoon tea in the premises too.
- Board the Hogwarts Express
The Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross can let you board the famous Hogwarts Express and let you into the majestic world of witchcraft and wizardry.
