Let’s take a look at some of Edinburgh’s biggest and best attractions right now…

Key events and attractions

The city plays host to the biggest arts festival in the world every August. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe lasts for most of the month and has been going strong since way back in 1947. However, there are so many more exciting things to see and do in and around the city all year round. One of the most famous attractions in the city is the extinct volcano Arthur's Seat, which offers spectacular skyline views and can be seen from miles around. The city is also well known for its fantastic restaurants, shopping facilities, museums and friendly cafes and bars.

Rich in history

Edinburgh Castle is also one of the city’s most renowned attractions. Many exciting events take place there throughout the year, including various historical re-enactments. The city is synonymous with whisky, and you can delve into the long history of Edinburgh’s close relationship with the spirit by enjoying a distillery tour or a guided walk. Another big draw for tourists is the Old Town, which includes the picturesque Victoria Street, Grassmarket and George IV Bridge. The Old Town is home to a string of market-leading boutiques, bookshops and delicatessens as well as the fascinating Camera Obscura and World of Illusions. The Scott Monument is another key attraction named after Sir Walter Scott. This leading Gothic draw is one of the UK’s tallest monuments and offers epic views of the city.

Edinburgh entertainment

Music, comedy, film and theatre lovers are catered for brilliantly with the city’s diverse range of venues, including the Queen’s Hall, Usher Hall, Stramash Live Music Bar, C Venues, Festival Theatre, Lyceum and many more. One of the best places to unwind in the city is the Meadows. Popular with students, it links the city centre with the more laidback Southside.  Art lovers can spend time admiring thought-provoking masterworks at the National Galleries Complex, Portrait Gallery and Modern Art One and Two.

Where to stay

If you need somewhere to stay during your visit to Edinburgh, The Bonham is the ideal location. The venue is home to stylish, welcoming lounges, a lauded restaurant offering European dishes with a Scottish twist, state-of-the-art conference and meeting spaces and a tranquil bar. The venue not only overlooks but offers access to the soothing Drumsheugh Gardens, retaining a host of original architectural features. The building itself dates back to the mid-19th century, and all subsequent refreshes and renovations have been carried out with the greatest care, to ensure none of the venue’s historic charm is lost.
