Our Edinburgh location.
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.
True, there are lots of sights and attractions to see, including Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum and Galleries of Scotland, the Royal Botanic Garden and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. But there’s also a lot to be enjoyed just by strolling the cobbled streets and wide Georgian avenues, soaking up the atmosphere of the city. With our insider tips, plus your very own city centre apartment, you can go beyond the guidebook. Meet locals. Clink cocktails in our favourite bars. Feel what it’s like to live here, instead of just visiting.
