Edinburgh & Glasgow Vacation Packages

Two cities with distinct personalities, Edinburgh will entrance you with its modern and medieval architecture, and Glasgow will mesmerize you with its museums, vibrant nightlife and welcoming people. 

Explore Edinburgh & Glasgow

From bagpipes and kilts to stories of myths and legends, you can expect the unexpected in Scotland. From a 12th-century castle to a Scotch Whisky Experience — past and present collide in Edinburgh. Much of the city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and there’s a distinct air of mystery and intrigue everywhere you turn. The largest city in Scotland, Glasgow is home to fantastic art galleries, beautiful parks, live music venues, amazing street art and welcoming locals.

Edinburgh has something for all tastes and interests — from history and literature to cycling and art. Experience the varying aromas of regional whiskies. Take a stroll through stunning botanic gardens. Situated on top of Castle Rock, Edinburgh Castle and its Esplanade offer unparalleled views of the city. Visit the Palace of Holyroodhouse for a look at the Queen’s state apartments, including the throne room. With a beautiful castle as a backdrop and wonderful restaurants, Edinburgh has all the makings for a perfect romantic getaway.

Glasgow boasts a vibrant urban atmosphere with beautiful architecture. It is very much a modern city filled with an impressive indie music scene, a mecca of high-fashion shopping, and a lively culture waiting to be explored. It is also home to some of Britain's greatest artwork in the various museums and galleries scattered throughout the city, including the Gallery of Modern Art and the breathtaking Kelvingrove Art Gallery.

Consider a day trip from Edinburgh or Galway to the Highlands. The Highlands are an amazing concoction of culture, history, architecture and unparalleled scenery that fills the air with a haunting mystery — not to mention some of the most beautiful and romantic castles in the world. Delta Vacations offers whiskey and food experiences and tours to the Highlands and St. Andrews.

You will love shopping in Edinburgh. For upscale, high-fashion finds, including some of the top London designers, make your way to the Royal Mile, where you’ll find Scottish souvenirs that include whiskey, trinkets and tartan. Following right behind London, Glasgow boasts the second largest retail space in the United Kingdom. This shopping haven features everything from tiny boutiques to some of the most cutting-edge fashions. Antiques, fashions straight off the runway, and everything in between can be found in the city's stores. The most popular shopping streets in Glasgow—Buchanan, Sauchiehall, and Argyle—create a Z formation in the heart of Glasgow. Visitors will find large shopping centers and small boutiques alike lining these pedestrianized thoroughfares, including Buchanan Street's Princes Square, the most stylish shopping complex in Glasgow.

Edinburgh is home to the best, most award-winning restaurants in the country and offers the widest array of dining options. Along with traditional Scottish fare, visitors will find menus filled with amazing seafood, French-, Spanish-, and Italian-inspired cuisine, and an array of international options, including Indian and Thai. A must-try is Scotland’s national dish, haggis. This savory pudding combines meat with oatmeal, onions and spices, and its warm, moist, meaty and spicy taste is a comfort food you don’t want to miss.

You'll find a plethora of dining options in Glasgow, with everything from locally sourced meals to delicious international cuisine. Glasgow comes alive as the sun sets. You can dance the night away at some of Scotland's trendiest clubs, converse with the locals in a friendly pub, or enjoy a vibrant performing arts scene. If live music is what you crave, you'll find tons of options for the choosing. For more live performances, purchase tickets to see the Scottish Ballet, Scottish Opera, or the Scottish Royal Orchestra, all based in Glasgow.

Delta Vacations flight + hotel packages include round-trip airfare aboard Delta or a Delta Partner Airline to Edinburgh Airport (EDI) or Glasgow Airport (GLA). For the flexibility and convenience to travel when and where you want, add a car rental to your package. It’s the best way to venture out of the city to enjoy the beautiful countryside.
