The real magic is outside the festival
The infectious, creative vibe of Fringe spreads throughout the city with performances at virtually every pub, restaurant and street corner.
Hit the streets
Some of the best street performers (called buskers) are along the Royal Mile.
Go out with a bang
Don’t miss the festival’s fireworks finale.
Fly into (EDI) and make your way to the town center. Cabs, buses, and walking are the preferred method of travel. Staying in the center of town is best since you’ll be coming and going to your hotel frequently, as there are shows all day and night. It’s an immensely popular time of year, though, so book well in advance or risk having to stay outside of town.
