Embrace Edinburgh's Cultural Side This Summer


Abbey Strand Apartments is enriched with a wealth of culture and history, a splash of colour, and a nod to antiquity and the monarchy.

The apartments celebrate the nearby Palace of Holyroodhouse within the décor. However, the historical influence of Edinburgh is uncontainable. To commemorate this influence, we've put together three of the best cultural experiences to enjoy this summer.

Edinburgh Art Festival

Summer brings a city-wide celebration of culture and diversity. July and August host the city's most flamboyant and outgoing events, with bursts of Edinburgh's charisma and flavour resonating throughout the city. Edinburgh's Art Festival embraces the capital's atmosphere with an assortment of contemporary visual artists, workshops, museum exhibitions, galleries and artist-run spaces. Take advantage of the fresh emerging talent and interact with their newly commissioned work displayed in public and historical sites throughout the city.

Champagne Master Class

No previous knowledge is needed for this taste bud tantaliser. The Royal Scots Club is hosting a champagne tasting event sampling an array of elegantly styled champagnes. Experience an evening of aristocratic entertainment in a relaxed, laid back environment.

Edinburgh Military Tattoo

An event which is unique to the Scottish capital. The celebration of the British Armed Forces, enriched with artist performances and timeless choreography in a display of colour, light and sound, is one not to miss. The Tattoo is a fusion of historical commemoration and contemporary visual performance, an annual staple of Edinburgh's festival experience.
