3 day trip from London to Edinburgh, Dublin, Stockholm or Helsinki+Tallin

Jump to last reply

Will be in London for work in mid April and looking to do a 3 day side trip before work to a place I have not been to. The 4 options I came up with are:

Edinburgh, Dublin/North Ireland, Stockholm or Helsinki+Tallinn.

I realize that Edinburgh and Stockholm probably have more to offer from a historical/sightseeing perspective but the big plus of going to Helsinki+Tallinn is that I can fly direct (preferred airline) while all others will require me to make a connection from NYC. It also allows me to experience 2 countries with 2 different cultures in a short period of time because they are a quick 2hr boat ride from each other. On the other hand, Edinburgh is probably warmer and so much more majestic. I am torn. Dublin sounds fun and fairly close to the beautiful North Ireland countryside with the Giant Causway. Thoughts?
