Edinburgh’s The Chester Residence Takes Centre Stage for Festival
Edinburgh is the hottest place to be in the UK this August – and not just because of the sizzling summer temperatures north of the border. The Edinburgh International Festival…
The Scottish capital or auld reekie has come a long way from the polluted streets that gave Edinburgh its familiar name. Few cities in the UK make for a better short break, or if you don’t mind the cold, to live.
Dating from the 12th century the Castle dominates the granite city and is the most popular tourist attraction in Scotland – after Loch Ness. However, it is not the only high point in a city, which just like Rome was said to be built on seven hills.
There is no limit to the attractions to entertain you in the Scottish capital especially around Princes Street. Alternatively, just wander around the many back streets imagine yourself transported back in time.
August is the most popular time to visit, when both the main festival and the Fringe are in town. Unless you have come for the events, which come highly recommended, then it’s best to give the city a wide berth at this time.
Accommodation can get booked up quickly especially during the festival season so we advise you take advantage of our Hotel Booking Portal and reserve your room in town in advance.
