Summer in Edinburgh

22 July 2021

Edinburgh is a very popular summer holiday destination, not only does Edinburgh host some of the most world-famous festivals including The Edinburgh Fringe and International festival, it’s vibrant City Centre and buzzing atmosphere draws a flock of summer visitors from across the globe.

From huge festivals to outdoor activities, it’s no surprise we see university students arriving early at their student accommodation, taking time to settle in and explore their wonderful new City.

To treat our first residents here at Novel Student we are offering two weeks early arrival, on us! That’s two weeks free accommodation to enjoy Summer in Edinburgh.

Read below to find out exactly what is going on in Edinburgh this Summer, and why you should make the most of our free Summer stay.


Fringe Festival

The largest arts festival in the world! Still set to go ahead within the latest COVID-19 rules. The festival will run from 6th-30th August and includes performances from big names in the world of entertainment to unknown artists looking to build their careers. This festival caters for everyone and includes theatre, comedy, dance, physical theatre, circus, cabaret, children’s shows, musicals, opera, music, spoken word, exhibitions, and events.

It is truly not one to miss – find out more about this incredible festival and ticket purchasing here.

Novel Student Free Events

Making sure you have the best summer ever; we are hosting an array of fun events for you to get involved in for FREE!

Get your mixology on with our in-house cocktail masterclass, get some TLC and fresh nails at our nail bar and join our huge Silk Mill launch party, where there will be a live DJ, delicious food, cocktails and entertainment – these really aren’t ones to miss!

Secure your spot at our Silk Mill student events here.

PS we also have free student events in Glasgow and Sheffield across July and August.


Foodies Festival

You can’t go wrong with good weather (finger crossed), live music and of course, an endless supply of tasty food and drink!

Located in the heart of Edinburgh, head to Inverleith Park (right next to the Royal Botanic Gardens) between the 6th and 8th August to join the UK’s biggest food festival and nab some cooking tips from some top chefs.

Edinburgh Zoo After Hours

Does this remind anyone else of Night at the Museum, although in a zoo? For adults only, Edinburgh Zoo are opening their doors throughout July and August for you to enjoy a summer evening stroll accompanied by some animal spotting and good vibes.

Something a little different but  definitely worth a visit. Make sure you follow the link as tickets are selling out fast here.

PS – Edinburgh Zoo also host open air theatres and other events so it’s worth keeping an eye out for those too!

Vibration Festival

We think it’s all in the title – get your ticket and enjoy the likes of David Bowie and other live artists at this September weekend festival (3rd-4th).

It may be a little drive or train journey to Falkirk, (less than an hour) but not only do they have live music, but you can also enjoy some craft beers, street food, silent discos and street performers whilst enjoying a short trip outside of the main City Centre.
