Edinburgh is a beautiful, bustling city, rich in Scottish heritage and adorned with fabulous architectural structures. The city offers an eclectic mix of old and new, with contemporary stores and attractions planted against the traditional foundations of the city.
Safety is paramount, wherever you choose to travel, whether for the day or for a short holiday. Be vigilant to avoid accidents such as slips, trips and falls, but also more complex public accidents that may pose severe health risks.
Top 10 things to do in Edinburgh
With so much on offer, visitors to Edinburgh often feel overwhelmed and don’t quite know how to fit everything in. There are a few must-do attractions and sites, and these top ten are most definitely worth checking out:
- Edinburgh Castle
- Holyrood Palace
- Edinburgh Zoo
- National Museum of Scotland
- Arthur’s Seat
- St. Giles’ Cathedral
- Museum of Childhood
- Edinburgh Playhouse
- Holyrood Park
- HMY Britannia
Becoming ill or injured during a day out while on holiday can ruin the experience completely. If you or your family members have sustained an injury due to an accident that you believe wasn’t your fault, there may be something you can do about it.
No matter where your injury or illness was sustained – from public pathways to restaurants and visitor attractions – owners of these areas have a legal responsibility to ensure your health and safety while you use their facilities.
When you do have an accident in a public place, the owner may not have met this requirement and therefore, you may have a case to claim against them for public liability.
