Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and is a large, historic city that currently has a population of around 537,000. Its historical and cultural offering has made it the UK's second most-visited tourist destination outside of London. The city was once known for banking, publishing and brewing but the local economy has since evolved to rely on financial services, scientific research, higher education, and tourism. Edinburgh is the UK's second-largest financial district with financial services dominating a third of all offices in the city.
The city is brimming with history and culture, with the Old Town and New Town together being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Historic sites and places of interest in Edinburgh include Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Zoo. The city is home to three universities - University of Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh Napier University which are collectively attended by around 58,000 students.
Edinburgh is also home to some of the world's largest events and festivals including the Edinburgh International Festival and the world's largest annual arts festival, Edinburgh Fringe, as well as the iconic Hogmanay new year celebrations.
There are plenty of great options for shoppers to choose from including the popular main shopping area, Princes Street, which is full of souvenir shops and well-known high street stores. For those seeking a more upmarket experience, George Street is where you'll find some of the city's most sought after independent and luxury stores. In addition to shopping, Edinburgh nightlife is memorable due to its buzzing personality and variety of bars, pubs, restaurants and nightclubs to choose from.
The Scottish capital city is full of endless opportunity, making it a prime location for businesses to advertise in Scotland.
