What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

What’s On In Edinburgh – July 2019

The temperatures are finally rising here in the capital and the city is truly gearing up for the festival season. Our theme for July is Edinburgh by the Sea, inspired by summer and the beautiful beaches that you’ll find in and around the capital. The sea is perhaps not the first thing one associates with Edinburgh, but you don’t have to go far to discover some of the country’s finest beaches and idyllic seaside splendour. Be sure to keep an eye on our upcoming blog posts to help you make the most of Edinburgh this July!

In June we shared some of our favourite places to eat in Edinburgh, including 6 great places to eat local food in Edinburgh and an exclusive interview with Wedgwood the Restaurant, one of the city’s finest eateries. We hope our posts have inspired you to try something new!
