2 reviews for Jurys Inn Edinburgh
My husband and I went to some Edinburgh festivals last year (during the summer - the official Edinburgh festival runs through August each year), I used this site because it was quite hard to get some decent info on the quirkier events that were happening until I found it. We visited loads of different shows in 2009, this year it looks like they have most of what we want to see and do in Edinburgh, which is great. I'd recommend visiting the site to inspire you - the only downside is that we ended up going to LOADS more events than we'd planned... there's just so many events in Edinburgh going on! Make sure you check out the full range during the Edinburgh festival, I hadn't known that there was non-mainsteam stuff like comedy and performance art until I saw how many tickets were available. So do your research!
I'm from the USA, last year (2009) was my first visit to the UK. We started off in London for 4 days, then travelled up to Edinburgh to visit some family we have up there.
We visited Edinburgh mid August so had lots to do in our short 3 day visit as the Edinburgh Festival was running at the time.
This is an annual event. There are lots of free events, famous comedians, theatre, music.
The Edinburgh Festivals website was the one my relatives seemed to use when planning the day ahead so I have recommended this one.
