Edinburgh Festival Accommodation

If you’ve never experienced Edinburgh during festival time, why not make this the year you do?   The city is a-buzz during August with the International and Fringe Festivals and their fantastic programmes of cultural events.  Although busy with tourists, it’s a truly wonderful time to visit the city and get swept up in the festival atmosphere.  There are also a range of other festivals that sit either side of the International and Fringe Festivals, including the Jazz and Blues Festival, Art Festival, Book Festival and Storytelling Festival.

Edinburgh International Festival

The world famous Edinburgh International Festival features the best in international music, theatre, opera and dance.  There are a wide variety of events to enjoy, whether you’re interested in concerts or talks and workshops.

The 2018 festival will be held from 3rd to 27th August and you can download the 2018 festival brochure, view the venue map and find out more about the events, by visiting www.eif.co.uk.

Edinburgh Festival Fringe

The Festival Fringe categories include children’s shows, comedy, cabaret, dance and physical theatre, and exhibitions. The main difference between the International Festival and the Fringe Festival is that the artists involved in the International Festival have been invited by the Festival Director, whereas anyone can perform at the Fringe Festival, as long as they pay a fee to the Fringe for box office services and inclusion in the brochure.

The 2018 Fringe Festival runs from 3rd – 27th August.  Find out more about the Fringe Festival at www.edfringe.com.

Edinburgh Festival Accommodation

Staying in a self-catering holiday apartment in the city can help you to really embrace Edinburgh!   Live like a local and enjoy the freedom and flexibility of your own home-from-home.  Accommodation during festival time gets booked up early so make sure you plan ahead if you’re planning on staying in Edinburgh in August.
