"There are national history and art museums in Edinburgh. In summer we have the Fringe Festival and at Christmas there is also a lot to do, like the market, theatre and ice-skating."
"There is so much to do from, on average, three good club nights every night to quieter pub nights and concerts etc. It's more a case of what can't you do!"
"It's a capital city so there are many bars, restaurants, cafes, museums and nice places to walk."
"Lots of choice and reasonable closing times for clubs."
"Lots of clubs with very different target audiences. There's a good range of pubs and bars as well."
"It's a city with historical and natural value so you will be able to enjoy both within the same area."
"There are lots of things to see and do but the night life is expensive."
"Good mix of cheap and fancier clubs. Huge selection of coffee shops and places to eat."
"I'm not really one for going out and drinking but there are plenty of bars and clubs to do so. The film and theatre scene is great, there's always something to go and see."
"There are a lot of nice bars to go to, particularly around Grassmarket and Cowgate. Sitting in little beer gardens during the summer is also really nice. The Edinburgh Festival is also great fun with lots of comedy and live music."
