Summer is known as the festival season. Winter is known as the festive season. Autumn is known for its rich and vibrant colours. And, spring is known for its unrivalled beauty, peace and tranquillity. Nestled between the frosty months of winter and the bustling months of summer, Edinburgh in spring is the perfect combination of warmer weather (relatively speaking of course), quieter streets and blossoming beauty everywhere you look.
Peace and Quiet
The hustle and bustle of a buzzing metropolis is part and parcel of a busy city. It is why we are so lucky to enjoy some rare city quiet in our central Parliament House Hotel. Despite our location just off of Princes Street, within walking distance of Waverley Station, it is easy to forget you are in the heart of Edinburgh. Just like our beautiful hotel, spring in Edinburgh is always a little quieter. Like the calm before the storm, the entire city slowly wakes from a winter-long hibernation before bursting forth into festival madness. Sure, there is still a bit of a nip in the air, but if you can brave the crisp clear springtime air, it is worth it. Because it’s the perfect time to visit our vibrant capital city.
In the wake of Christmas celebrations and start-of-year obligations like Valentine’s Day, it is always a little harder to loosen the purse strings. Which is another reason why we love Edinburgh in spring. Despite loads of fantastic events, festivals, markets and fairs, you can enjoy better rates (for most things) than you would during the busier summer months. And to ensure springtime in Edinburgh really pays off, there are still loads of incredible special offers to help you spring into action and save. From affordable accommodation in Edinburgh to mouth-watering new menus, heading to Edinburgh in spring truly does pay off.
No matter the weather, there is always something to do in Edinburgh. Especially when the entire city has undergone a blossoming, colourful transformation. Snowdrops, crocuses and daffodils burst forth and frosty gardens are carpeted with drops of white, yellow and purple as far as the eye can see. Which means a trip to the Royal Botanic Garden is a must.
Whatever you decide to do here, Edinburgh in spring comes but once a year. You wouldn’t want to miss it! Check out our special offers and book a trip today.
