When go to Edinburgh

The best time to visit Edinburgh in terms of the weather is between May and September, though it can be both wet and windy at any time of the year. The city is world-renowned for its festival season. There are ten official festivals between early August and mid-September, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Edinburgh International Festival. New Year is a big deal in Scotland and "Hogmanay", as it's known locally, is a truly spectacular celebration, enjoyed by people of all ages.

Know Before You Go

Those who wish to stay in Edinburgh over the festival season in Summer are well-advised to book hotels or other accommodation in good time. Sometimes, it can be necessary to book up to a year beforehand as the city can get very crowded with visitors during this busy time. Edinburgh is cheaper to visit than London and prices are roughly at the UK average. A cheap meal will cost around £10 and a pint of beer about £3.50.
