5 July Edinburgh
Normally when we travel to a Jitsu event we see the inside of a sports centre and then go home.
So day three will be your chance to relax, recharge the batteries and explore Scotland’s capital city.
Edinburgh has many attractions to entice the visitor with history and culture. Tour Edinburgh Castle, shop on the Royal Mile & visit the Palace of Holyrood House.
For the brave there are famous ghost walks through the historic streets, once roamed by the infamous Burke and Hare.
Visit the hidden city catacombs or the Edinburgh Dungeon. Child friendly tours are also available at both these attractions.
The ‘World of Illusions’ has optical illusions and plenty of ‘hands on’ activities for the younger visitors.
You could try the “Scottish Whisky Experience” a chance to explore and understand the history, how it’s made and the difference between Scotch, Irish Whiskey & Bourbon.
