Edinburgh: The Festival Effect [Infographic]

Edinburgh has long been considered a top tourist destination for visitors to Scotland. With its combination of stunning architecture and historic buildings, along with fantastic cultural attractions such as museums and theatres, it is no wonder that Scotland’s capital attracts visitors from far and wide.

Perhaps one of the main things that entices visitors to ‘Auld Reekie’ is the incredible amount of festivals that the city plays host to every year. Whether you’re interested in science, performance, music or art, there is guaranteed to be an Edinburgh festival that you’ll enjoy.

As you can see from the infographic, the various different festivals encourage a lot of people to visit and stay in the city throughout the year, thus having a huge impact on the tourism industry in Scotland. In fact, the amount of money spent by visitors to Edinburgh every year makes up over three quarters of the overall visitor expenditure in Scotland.
