If there’s every a time to visit Edinburgh it’s RIGHT NOW! No, not because you’re guaranteed some Scottish sun (fat chance! If you don’t get drowned in a surprise shower at least once, then think yourself lucky) but because during August, the stunning city is home to the Edinburgh festival. A whole month of exciting culture, from dance to film, from theatre to literature, from art to comedy (a whole heap of comedy) complete with a striking backdrop and a castle on top.
With thousands of performances taking place in hundreds of venues throughout the city, there is literally something for everyone. And just because Edinburgh is the city that doesn’t sleep throughout August, it doesn’t mean that you’re not expected too. Here are our tops tips for where to rest your pretty, high-brow, cultured, and occasionally mind-blown heads:
The Rutland Hotel – Located on Princes Street, you’ll not find a more central or convenient location.
The Bonham Hotel – Feel inspired by the hotel’s permanent art collection
Royal Garden Apartments – Going with friends? These one and two bedroom apartments are right in the heart of the city.
