Visiting Edinburgh

A uniquely inspirational setting, Edinburgh is known for its associations with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress. 

Steeped in history, this vibrant capital city seamlessly blends an architecturally stunning backdrop with modern developments, offering conference and event delegates a host of traditional, dynamic and unique venues in a world-class destination.

Just a minute’s walk from The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, is the National Museum of Scotland (Opening Times 10 am to 6 pm, Entrance Free). One block further down is the Royal Mile, a place always full of tourists. It stretches from the Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyrood House. Perhaps, delegates and faculty may want to extend their stay in Edinburgh beyond the conference, to explore these visitor attractions in more detail.

Edinburgh is a great tourist destination in March, and we hope you can bring family as well. Over the centuries Edinburgh has enthralled visitors, and March 2018 will be no different.
