Edinburgh has been named as the world’s best city to visit this year on a renowned list of travel recommendations.

Edinburgh beat the likes of Prague, Madrid, Taipei, and New York to claim the top spot in the annual Time Out index as the most “beautiful and walkable city” on the planet.

The capital was also voted the second easiest city to express who you are and third easiest to take a walk in nature or a greenspace.

Edinburgh council leader Cammy Day said: “It’s fantastic that Edinburgh has topped the Time Out Index as the best city to visit in the world right now. I’m incredibly proud to call Edinburgh my home and it’s clear so many other people also want to spend time in this beautiful city.  Not only is the capital stunning, but it’s extremely walkable, filled with historical charm and green spaces and diverse in its outlook. That’s not to mention our vibrant cultural scene, programme of festivals and thriving hospitality industry, which attract so many people here every year.  All this is despite an extremely challenging couple of years, which businesses, festivals and hospitality venues have weathered. It’s our outstanding mix of restaurants, cafes and bars, green spaces, events and attractions, shops and hotels – and every single person who works in these industries – who we have to thank for the city’s continued appeal.”
