If it’s culture you’re after, there’s a calendar of festivals – including the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe – as well as galleries, theatres and music venues. And if food and drink is your thing, then you’re spoilt for choice with Michelin-starred restaurants, a buzzing café culture and a vibrant nightlife. Come for a weekend or the summer.

The Scottish capital is well known for its arts festivals, including the Edinburgh International Festival and the Fringe. But it’s not just a summer city - there's a packed calendar of events and pop-ups the whole year round.
