What’s to say? The Edinburgh festival is the largest arts festival in the world. It’s highly unlikely that you haven’t heard of it. For three weeks in August, Scotland’s capital is host to all manner of entertainment, and us lovely folk at Dreamhouse Apartments thought we’d shortlist a few for you…
The Fringe Festival is probably best known for its vast offering of comedy, it’s the Glastonbury of Giggles. There are free shows, paid shows and impromptu shows. We’re especially fond of Al Murray, Reginald D Hunter, Mark Thomas and The Notorious Mary Bourke. Obviously, this is just a drop in the ocean of laughs available.
Music-wise we’d suggest wandering around and stumbling upon acts. Many will be playing for free, others will command a minor entrance fee. Click for the list.
You can’t shake a stick without hitting a cabaret or burlesque act these days, and the Edinburgh Fringe is no exception. Click here to see the full list of performers and buy tickets.
But the real star, of course, is our apartments! Book now to avoid disappointment.
Edinburgh is Scotland’s beautiful capital, known throughout the world as the Festival City since the first Edinburgh International Festival in 1947. There is much more than just one ‘Edinburgh Festival’ making up the Festival City, instead visitors come to Edinburgh every year to experience the many different festivals which all present a diverse variety of artists and events throughout the year. In August alone there are six different festivals running at the same time, including the International Festival.

Blasting through the record set by Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth has decided to celebrate this milestone in the Royal Family’s holiday house/castle in rural Scotland. Among her duties while visiting will be opening the Scottish Borders Railway with the Duke of Edinburgh and Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
According to the official website the Borders Railway will be:
The opening of the line unlocks another way to get to Edinburgh and stay with us at Dreamhouse Apartments of course, and should the Queen decide to pop in on her way back we’ve got tea and cake waiting…
