Booking Festival Tickets
Most visitors to the Fringe decide on the day which show takes their fancy. But not to be disappointed you can buy tickets in advance from The Fringe Box Office.
During August the streets of Edinburgh will be bustling with people ready to party the night away. In between seeing some comedy, a spot of theatre and a band or three, make sure you've got your dancing shoes on. Most pubs in Edinburgh gear themselves up especially for the fun and games of August, staying open until 5am and sharing the Fringe spirit.
Edinburgh is one of the UK's most beautiful cities, making it a unique backdrop for the world's largest arts festival. Crack the Da Vinci Code by heading to the Roslyn Chapel, climb Arthur's Seat for the stunning views, or explore Edinburgh Castle. There is so much to see in Edinburgh!
We recommended you book accommodation early to get the your choice of hotels and early deals (hotels in Edinburgh). Whether you decide to stay in the city centre near to the castle or on the fringes, there is a wide choice of accommodation.
