Edinburgh Fringe Festival
The Edinburgh Fringe Festival has been running since 1947 and came about as an alternative option to the large International Festival that takes place in Edinburgh every year. Annually in August hundreds of acts gather in Edinburgh in order to display their talents. Children's shows, comedy acts, dance troupes, theatre acts, circus, music, opera and many more acts entertain the crowds, while many displays take place on the Royal Mile and are totally free to view.
Edinburgh Castle dominates the Edinburgh skyline as we approach the castle down the Royal Mile. The castle is steeped in centuries of history and is a must see for those who are visiting the city. Here we take a look at what you can expect to find today when paying the castle a visit.
