Forget New York - it's Edinburgh that is the city that never sleeps. With a head spinning number of festivals, parties, events, fireworks and celebrations you'll be exhilarated - and exhausted after a few days in this captivating capital city.
This city boasts over 22 festivals every year, with the The Edinburgh International Festival, The Military Tattoo, The Edinburgh Book Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival are by far the most famous. Combined, these festivals bring the world to Scotland and are responsible for bringing a heady mix of theatre, music, comedy, film, literature, art, magic, media & television, politics and so much more every summer.
During the winter months, there's just as much to get involved in - with festivals celebrating topics as diverse as science, storytelling, short films, wine, Mexican day of the dead and of course - Edinburgh's Christmas & Hogmanay celebrations.
On the occasional day that doesn’t boast a festival there’s still plenty to do when you’re glamping in Edinburgh. The National Museum of Scotland, Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace are all very worthy places to visit.
Views across the city are yours when you climb up one of Edinburgh’s many hills - Arthur’s Seat, Calton Hill or Corstorphine Hill are all stunning. For the less energetic experience, take a lift to the rooftop terrace of Harvey Nichols and enjoy a glass of fizz with the view!
History, heritage and culture abound in this year-round destination with its many special events, museums, fine architecture, art galleries and exhibitions. For those who want a more informed look around the history-steeped streets, there are guided tours - on foot or even by bicycle.
For families, see the UK's only giant pandas on a trip to a trip to Edinburgh Zoo, and there are adventurous pursuits like paintballing, climbing, surfing, diving and sailing. When it comes to eating out you'll find everything from award-winning restaurants, cafes and bars to elegant afternoon tea rooms.
The peaceful surroundings of a Wigwam® Holidays site as your glamping base will give you the best of both worlds. By day, immerse yourself in the vibrant city. By night, relax by a campfire, marvel at the night sky and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the stunning Wigwam® Sites.
