Edinburgh, City of
Edinburgh’s beauty is both staggering and inimitable. However, the city is far more than just a pretty face. Take a closer look and there’s much more to discover.
You can touch history in the narrow wynds and cobbled streets of the Royal Mile and the Old Town. Then walk through beautiful gardens such as the iconic Princess Street gardens or explore hidden gems such as Dean Village with its spectacular colourful houses and footpaths along the Water of Leith. You can also disappear into the heart of Holyrood Park leave the city behind for a walk around our volcano.
Feeling hungry? Throughout the year Edinburgh hosts several farmers markets with the largest market held weekly under the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. And once you have bought your lunch what better place to eat it than under a giant sequoia tree in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
What we are best known for however is being the world's festival capital. Every year Edinburgh hosts the world's largest arts festival in August where performers take over the streets and nearly every venue in the city is turned into a theatre, concert hall or comedy stage. But that is the city just getting started. You'll find creativity and culture throughout the year covering nearly everything from books to science and comedy.
After a year of world-class events Edinburgh is not finished yet as we like to close the year off in style. The Edinburgh Hogmanay party offers 3 days of incredible bands, spectacular events and crowds from around the world.
Highlighted as one of the ‘Top 100 things to do before you die’ and recently the only festival to appear in the ‘Discovery Channel – Top 25 World Travel Experiences’, Edinburgh's Hogmanay Street Party is one of the world’s greatest New Year celebrations. One of the world's biggest outdoor parties is framed by the stunning backdrop of Edinburgh Castle making for a truly breath-taking evening. As the clock strikes midnight, images of the fireworks from Edinburgh Castle are beamed around the world to over 1 billion people.
