Visit the castle during the shoulder season: in May, June or September. However, this is also the city’s busiest time, so book well in advance to avoid missing out. Winter is also a good time to visit as the crowds are lesser. But make sure you layer up really well as it can get uncomfortably chilly. Visit midweek if you want to explore in peace and with lesser crowds. The weekends can be extremely crowded as Edinburgh is a popular getaway on weekends.
You could make the most of your time and resources by taking an Edinburgh hop-on, hop-off bus tour and hopping off near the castle. The Royal Mile walk from the castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse is a must-do where you can admire the impressive architecture and star attractions of the city. Waverly station is also a walking distance from the castle and is Edinburgh’s main station. If you want to take a bus, then the Airlink 100 express bus runs from the airport to the city centre. It takes 25 minutes to reach Waverley Bridge, next to the main railway station. We also advise that you book the castle ticket or tour with roundtrip transfers included in the package in order to enjoy a convenient and hassle-free experience.

Even though Edinburgh continues to be a tourist hotspot, you need not break the bank to explore the charming castle. Travel during the off-season and you’ll get to book your tickets to Edinburgh Castle at more affordable rates. Try booking in Nov and Dec instead of the summer months when the attraction can get uncomfortably crowded. Another way to stick to your budget is by planning in advance. Check out the best deals online and pre-book your tour package well before you visit. It is always more expensive when you buy tickets at the attraction itself.
