Travelling to Edinburgh
Get all the secrets from those in the know.
Edinburgh Edinburgh International Film Festival mixes red carpet glamour, innovative and exciting cinematic discoveries and massive audience appeal.
Are you already dreaming about the summer festival season? It is never too soon (or too late!) to start planning: here are a few tips and suggestions to help.
Beyond the festivals
Some of the world's most spectacular scenery and most enduring experiences are just a short trip away. Why not extend your visit to Edinburgh's Festivals and explore Scotland?
Choose from national collections and international blockbusters to more intimate spaces and exhibits to venues that encourage exploration and adventure.
The villages of Edinburgh are well worth discovering – each is surprisingly close to the city centre, and a world away from what you might expect.
