And at night? Going out in Edinburgh

Gone are the days when Edinburgh's nightlife was quite boring and locals had to go to Glasgow for a good night. Edinburgh is in full swing and its nightlife is excellent thanks to locals and the many tourists who visit the city every year. There isn´t an exclusive party area, but several different ones: George Street in the New Town, High Street in the Old City, the university and the Grassmarket. Broughton Street tends to attract a "motley" clientele, while Leith is one of the most popular areas.
The bars in the city range from traditional taverns with hundreds of years of history behind them, to bars with a modern design. Once the bars close, people often go to the clubs that offer a variety of music to suit all tastes. There are many places that offer live music and big concerts are usually held at Murrayfield Stadium.

Events and festivals

The season in which Edinburgh has the largest number of visitors is the summer (July-September) and particularly in August, during the famous Edinburgh International Festival which is when the city stirs great cultural activity. At the same time, it also hosts the Fringe Festival (alternative festival), the Military Tattoo (military parade), the Jazz Festival and the Film Festival.

University of Edinburgh

In Edinburgh there are 4 large, very prestigious universities, where thousands of international students come each year. The oldest, the University of Edinburgh, dates back to 1583.
