Why Edinburgh is the Nicest City in UK

 

Disclaimer: I am completely biased

 

Scotland’s capital is a beauty and I’m not just talking about its sexy citizens!

Despite being home to a tiny 400,000 inhabitants, Edinburgh holds its own as a top tourist destination across the world. This is proved by the millions of tourists that flock here in August alone. Don’t believe me? Here’s what others had to say:

-Rough Guides voted it the 4th most beautiful city in the world

-The Pegasus Marine survey voted it the Top British City to Visit in 2016

-Lonely Planet voted Scotland the Third Best Country to visit in 2014

-In a 2009 poll by YouGov, Edinburgh was voted the most desirable city to live in the UK.

 

So, what is it about the ‘Athens of the North’ that is so appealing? It could be the historic buildings mixed with the green landscape. Why don’t you make up your own mind. It’s certainly not the weather. But, if you ask me – wind, rain, or clouds, the city still shines!
