This website serves as the official guide to Edinburgh and is owned by The City of Edinburgh Council.
Navigation is provided through a top level menu and slit into sections. As well as providing statistical and factual information, the website acts as a signpost to information that is readily available about Edinburgh City Region on third party websites. This website is not all encompassing and relies on the information available on third party and partner websites to satisfy the visitor’s requirements.
Website visitors are invited to self select which information they require and navigate the website accordingly*.
