Beat The Crowds

The entrance to Edinburgh Castle

It’s quieter in Edinburgh midweek than on the weekend. So, you can have a more relaxed visit. There’ll be more chance of getting a table in your favourite Edinburgh restaurant. Or picking up some last-minute theatre tickets for a show at Edinburgh Playhouse. And you’ll find shorter queues at major attractions like Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Yacht Britannia.

During August Edinburgh is always very busy, as the city hosts its annual summer festivals. However, it’s slightly less busy midweek. So you can beat the festival crowds by visiting midweek and getting out early in the day.

So Much To Do

Some holiday-makers worry that the city will shut down midweek, or lose some of its bustling atmosphere. But this isn’t the case. Although quieter, Edinburgh is still a fun and vibrant city to visit throughout the week. The major attractions are open all week long. As are most of the shops, theatres, bars and restaurants. This guide from vloggers Samuel and Audrey gives you just a taste of some of the wonderful things to see and do here.
