The number of visitors attracted to Edinburgh almost doubles the resident population.
The most well-known of these events is the Edinburgh Fringe, the largest performing arts festival in the world. The Edinburgh International Festival,the E Military Tattoo; and the Edinburgh International Book Festival also occur in August.

Small but clean newly furnished and fully accessoried apartment, 200 meters from Royal Mile and 7 minutes from Central Rail Station.
