From organic medieval to neo-classical town planning and contemporary classics, Edinburgh’s architecture continues to inspire. Edinburgh’s architectural draw lies in its fascinating town planning. One of the best ways to explore and understand the city’s beautiful architecture is on foot as part of a walking tour. The Old Town is very popular amongst tourists. Other tours focus on geographical areas, building types, and chronological themes. Any local or tourist once here would find the architecture and sense of history to be the most impressive aspects of the city. Edinburgh has it all, from the medieval tenements of the Old Town to the ultra-modern Scottish Parliament. Edinburgh’s built heritage is the primary reason behind the abundant architectural tourists in the city. Here are my picks for the top 75 architectural firms in the city.
