The world's first science festival: a public celebration of all the wonders, inventions and innovations in the world of science and technology.
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.
