Autumn is the best season in Edinburgh. Don’t believe us? Lets try and convince you…

It’s All So Quiet

Not completely silent, the city is still buzzing BUT the madness of Festivals in August is over for another year! Now we aren’t exactly celebrating that as we do love the Fringe, but it’s nice to have our commute times back to normal and be able to enjoy the beauty of the Royal Mile, without sharing with 75% of the worlds population. Also the Autumn weather makes it all foggy and romantic, if you ignore the frequent rain showers and chilly winds.

Theatre Time

Hide away from the (sometimes) winter-like weather in the warmth of one of Edinburgh’s cosy theaters. From Tony-award winners and classic plays, to top-class stand-up acts and musicals, the Playhouse, Traverse and King’s Theatres have got you covered. Check out The List or What’s On Edinburgh to find out what’s coming up this season.

An Excuse to Shop

Colder weather means more layers. An excuse to hit the shops and buy a few cosy jumpers. From vintage stores to high end fashion, high street brands to independent boutiques, there is something for every fashion sense and age to be found in Edinburgh. Try Princes Street, George Street or pop into Harvey Nichols and detour to the Fourth Floor and its Chocolate Lounge.

Rugby For Days

Autumn Internationals! We’ll admit, we get a little too excited by rugby matches, but even the cold weather doesn’t stop us and thousands of others packing into BT Murrayfield to watch the Scotland Rugby Team take on some of the other top teams in the world. You can book tickets for the Autumn Internationals here, and we’ll be there with beers and burgers or a warming nip of whisky, to help cheer Scotland to victory.

Do It The Dunstane Way

Christmas is coming, so take the time to treat yourself before you start the festive shopping! Snuggle under the covers and linger a little longer, with our Stay Longer for Free offer. The Ba’ Bar fire has never been so appealing, so take us up on this offer. Just book a three-night stay and we’ll give you a fourth night completely free. Book online or get in touch direct to choose the best bedroom!
