Every summer, the Edinburgh festivals bring a wave of colour and soaring excitement to the city. Seven spectacular festivals proudly serve up the most incredible variety of culture you could ever imagine, filling the city's performance venues and event spaces and gardens throughout the July and August. The city of Edinburgh truly comes alive at ths time of year.
Every August the giants of the arts gather in Edinburgh for the Edinburgh International Festival. On a tremendous scale, Edinburgh becomes an international cultural epicentre for the performing arts offering exciting experiences to all who come to Edinburgh from every corner of the globe. This Festival is about the people who come together here in Edinburgh to create incredible experiences. The Edinburgh Festival is a state of the art, world class cultural event which has gone from strength to strength through the years since its' inception.
Edinburgh International Festival is the one that started it all. EIF was created in 1947 to help the flowering of the
human spirit, and it continues in its mission to bring astonishing high-end art (theatre, opera, dance and experiential performance) from across the world to the audiences of Edinburgh.
A number of our festival apartments are very well located in the prestigious Parliament Square postcode in the heart of Edinburgh's world famous Royal Mile and are only minutes away from allowing you to immerse yourself in the Edinburgh Festival experience.
With so much happening throughout the year in Edinburgh, including the Festival season, it's always best
to book up well in advance due to limited availability during this extremely busy period.
