SCHOOL TRIP TO EDINBURGH SEPTEMBER 2017
Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland, from its position on the Castle Rock. Edinburgh Castle was involved in many historical conflicts from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century. The castle, in the care of Historic Scotland, is Scotland's most-visited paid tourist attraction. The castle stands upon the plug of an extinct volcano, which is estimated to have risen about 350 million years ago.
The Princes Street Gardens
Princes Street Gardens is a public park in the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. The Gardens were created in two phases in the 1770s and 1820s following the long draining of the Nor Loch and building of the New Town, beginning in the 1760s. The loch, situated on the north side of the town, was originally an artificial creation forming part of its medieval defences and made expansion northwards difficult.
This street is very famous because there are a lot of shops so it is very busy. It is the main shopping street in the capital. If you are in the street you can see the Princes street gardens and also the Edinburgh castle.
