When’s the best time to visit Edinburgh?
It’s always a good time to visit Edinburgh. During winter the city fends off the longer evenings with fairy lights and eye-catching installations, including a procession of torches to mark the start of New Year’s Eve celebrations. Spring and autumn see a flourish of colour across the city as flowers begin to bloom and the leaves change during their respective seasons. In summer, Edinburgh’s streets become one gigantic party, with everything from comedy to cabaret taking place during the Fringe Festival, alongside the International Film Festival and Jazz & Blues Festival.
