The Lothians region
From museums, galleries and theatres to clubs, pubs and cinema, from the zoo to Dynamic earth and beautiful parks, from Edinburgh Castle to Holyrood House and the Parliament, Edinburgh has something to offer for everyone. Be sure not to miss the Fringe festival in August or the world famous Hogmanay Street Party on new Years Eve!
And as for the weather: yes it rains. And snows. And we do have some sunshine too. And sometimes all of it in one day! But with as many indoor activities as outdoor activities, Edinburgh has something to offer no matter what the weather is like.
Edinburgh has a relatively mild climate, being on the East Coast of Scotland. It provides a great base for exploring the South of Scotland, but also allows you to get to the highlands within a few hours drive.
Edinburgh has lots to offer for young and old. The Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Book Festival draw crowds in August, and the Edinburgh Military Tattoo is sure not to disappoint.
But August is not the only time of year to visit our city. December offers the Capital Christmas Festival and the World Famous Edinburgh Hogmanay Celebrations. Rugby fans can enjoy the Heineken Rugby Final or the 6 Nations cup at various times of year, and other sporting events include the Bupa Great Edinburgh Run, The Moon Walk, Edinburgh Marathon and much more.
The Film Festival in June brings in the rich and famous and not to miss for a bit of star spotting and good films from all over the world.
But there is much more. Whether you wish to trace your ancestors, visit the castle, explore the dark underground world by taking an exciting ghost tour or shop till you drop, you will find it in Edinburgh. And with excellent restaurants and bars and a great farmers market Edinburgh firmly established its self on the culinary map of Britain. A real foodie heaven!

"Excellent - would stay again"
A really nice apartment! - I was in Edinburgh for a weekend for a friends wedding and was having trouble finding a reasonably priced hotel. This apartment was affordable and came with everything you would expect, and more - a real 'home from home'.
I travelled alone on this occasion but would happily take my partner and kids back with me. If you're reading this and considering booking then don't hesitate - you won't regret it!

"A great base for exploring a great city"
This apartment was spotless, tastefully decorated, fully equipped and very well organised. The kitchen was brand new and there was plenty of light throughout.
We liked the location, within easy walking distance of the old city centre and Holyrood Palace and Park, and we found everything we needed for self catering along Easter Road itself (supermarkets, bakery shops...). We also discovered a tasty Indian restaurant just across the street.
Great value for money: I will definitely be back again soon.

"A good flat in a convenient area of town."
A well presented flat in a good area of town. This flat was reasonably priced with a good finish throughout and located in a good area of town, convenient for all of the major sights.
The facilities in the flat were good, a well stocked kitchen, plenty of information on the local area and a clean, comfortable bed. Parking is on street nearby and while free it may take time to find a space in peak hours.
