Finding accommodation in Edinburgh during the world-famous Fringe Festival doesn’t need to be as painful as you might think.


We have many stunning self-catering apartments dotted across the city which put you at the centre of the action so that you don’t miss a thing.

What is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019?

The Edinburgh Fringe is the world’s largest arts festival which takes place in August each year.


In 2018, smiling faces filled the city as comedians, actors, musicians, poets and artists from across the globe performed a record 3548 shows at 317 different venues across the city. The Fringe never fails to amaze, and we think it should be on everyone’s bucket list!


Edinburgh Festival 2019 takes place between 2nd-26th August, so it’s time to get booking your accommodation before the good stuff gets snapped up!
