Edinburgh International Festival
Every August, the Edinburgh International Festival transforms one of the world’s most beautiful cities, presenting three exhilarating weeks of the finest creators and performers from the worlds of the arts. Edinburgh’s six major theatres and concert halls, a few smaller venues and often some unconventional ones too, come alive with the best music, theatre, opera and dance from around the globe.
Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
From its early days, The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo has been an international favourite. Performers from over 46 countries have taken part in the Tattoo, and around 30 per cent of the 220,000 audience each year are from overseas. Each year’s Tattoo is very much a ‘global gathering’ – showcasing the talents of musicians and performers from every corner of the globe. In addition to this, the Tattoo has been televised in more than 30 countries. An annual television audience of 100 million watches the coverage worldwide. The international flavour of the Tattoo has been deliberately developed as a key element in its capacity to entertain a huge, cosmopolitan audience. The Tattoo’s unique ability to bring together thousands of people for this annual celebration of music and entertainment continues and the public’s appetite for pomp and ceremony shows no sign of diminishing.
Edinburgh Hogmanay Party
Three days of spectacular events, incredible bands and amazing crowds from every corner of the globe. See Shetland Vikings bearing firelit torches, hear beautiful choral singing in St Giles’ Cathedral, enjoy birling to traditional Scottish music on the Mound, and watch top stars and incredible fireworks from Princes Street Gardens.

Friendly and hospitable staff, GREAT shower, massive breakfast, comfortable rooms.
Enjoyable time at Judy’s Guest House. This guest house was extremely reasonable and a great location, on the bus line and across from the zoo. Food was great and the room was very nice. The owners were wonderful and went out of their way to help us with things. I would highly recommend this place to stay.
Proximity to main bus route. Clean comfortable room. Breakfast was a great bonus. Helpful owner and son. Lots of information pamphlets available.
Very friendly, very clean, excellent location for zoo and bus service to city
Exceptional. The staff are really friendly but not over familiar. Your made to feel welcome but given your space too, a properly run family establishment in a good location. I feel they have everything balanced nicely.
Staff could not do enough for you. I would go back just because they were so good.
