Summer is when Edinburgh really comes to life thanks to its two world-famous festivals, the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The International Festival brings some of the best performers of classical music, opera, dance and theatre to the city each August. Around the same time the Festival Fringe, which is the world’s largest arts festival, also takes over the city. Streets, plazas
and concert halls are packed during The Fringe with thousands of spectacular shows and performances.
Edinburgh has been the capital of Scotland since the 15th century and you’ll see reminders of its long history everywhere you look. Much of the historic city centre—which is divided into the medieval Old Town and the 18th century New Town—has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you choose to stay in the CES residential accommodation, you’ll be just a 10-minute walk from New Town’s world-
famous Prince’s Street which is Edinburgh’s main shopping thoroughfare. Most top attractions are a short walk away from our school and residence, including the Scottish Parliament Building, the National Museum of Scotland and the 12th century Edinburgh Castle.
