We Know How to Party!

Our culturally vibrant city hosts no fewer than 12 annual festivals plus our three-day New Year, or Hogmanay, celebrations.

Buzzing Throughout the Year

Around four million tourists from around the globe visit Edinburgh each year, making the Scottish capital Britain’s second most attractive city to visitors after London. This continual influx of tourists ensures that the city always feels alive and fresh and complements the vibrancy created by the residents who choose to call our city home all through the year.

Business Prowess

Edinburgh is renowned for being a hotspot for technology start-ups and only comes second to London in the list of the UK cities boasting the highest number of FTSE companies.

Experts predict that there will be around 3,200 new professional tech and science tech jobs created in Edinburgh over the next half a decade. This optimism for the future – and appreciation of current living conditions and lifestyle offers – is reflected in the fact that around 42 per cent of people who choose to study at Edinburgh University decide to stay on after they graduate.

Manageable Proportions

Despite the fact that Edinburgh is great for business, tourism and quality of life, its relatively small size gives it a unique appeal, whether you want to enjoy a community feel seldom discovered in some of the other large capitals of the world or simply want to live in a city where you can walk wherever you want to go.

Easy Access

Edinburgh offers great transport links to locations around the globe, but it also allows easy access to some of Britain’s most stunning rural areas and breath-taking coastlines.

Great Value and Lifestyle

MoveHub placed Edinburgh at the top of a list of 32 cities around the world thanks to the lifestyle and affordability on offer to cash-strapped Millennials.

Village Living in an Urban Hub

Edinburgh offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy all of the amenities and facilities of a modern city whilst still benefiting from the unique feel of village living. Some of the most popular locations of this type include Stockbridge and Morningside, which is famed for its excellent independent and state schools, Dominion Cinema and Waitrose supermarket.

Waterside Opportunities

Our city offers plenty of amazing waterside property opportunities, and the choices just keep increasing. One of the newest hotspots looks set to be the area between Granton and Newhaven. This is where 6,000 new properties are planned, along with a tram extension in the direction of Leith.
