The beguiling city of Edinburgh is a popular destination all year round, but in August, this city becomes especially popular, as the annual Edinburgh Fringe Festival comes into town.

As well as checking out the many shows on offer, here are some ideas of things to do while you’re in town:

Visit Edinburgh Castle

Dramatically perched high above the city, Edinburgh Castle is an unmissable sight as you walk around town. A visit to Edinburgh wouldn’t be complete without a wander through this historic site.

Go on a haunted walking tour

With its windy, cobbled streets, Edinburgh is the perfect place to go on a haunted walking tour after dark. Not only does it make for a fun night out, you will also learn about the city’s fascinating (though somewhat gruesome) history while you’re at it.

Eat some local cuisine

Yes, we’re talking about haggis. But if the thought of consuming this particular traditional fare makes you feel a bit queasy, you can try venison or stovies (a potato-based dish). Of course those looking for more modern cuisine won’t be disappointed, with plenty of internationally-renowned restaurants in this cosmopolitan city.

Take a look at our centrally-located apartments and start planning your city break in Edinburgh.
