Easy airport accommodation and hotels in Edinburgh

During the Edinburgh Festivals, when the city is buzzing with visitors, limit any stress you might have about missing your flight by staying near the airport at Edinburgh Festival Camping.

Staying nearby is an excellent way to save time and money, and get more sleep when you have an early morning flight, or even a long layover. If you’re looking for some comfortable budget accommodation for the night, or would like to end your holiday enjoying stress free fun with a feel of luxury, we’ve got you covered!

Relax In Comfort

Maybe you’re not sure camping is right for you and your friends, or you’re worried your family won’t be comfortable. We get it. That’s why we provide our comfortable Bell Tents, so you can enjoy all the fun of camping, but with a few more of those creature comforts we all love!

If you still want the experience of camping, but with a bit more comfort, our comfortable and fully-kitted out Bell Tents are perfect for solo travellers, couples, and families, with air mattresses, bed linen, cozy 13.5 tog duvets and plenty of space to spread out.
Our Bell Tents will accommodate up to 6 guests, so they’re great for families and groups.

Be Kind To Your Budget

Travelling on a budget doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the ease of airport accommodation. We have a range of tent options inside our pre-pitched village. For as little as £27/per night, you can enjoy a spacious tent and comfortable air mattresses. All our campers also have access to our wonderful campsite facilities including excellent showers and toilets, camp kitchen, device charging area, licenced bar in our Giant Tipi, and more!

And don’t worry if you’re not kitted out for camping. You can hire sleeping packs (sleeping bag and pillow) for only £12 each.

Soak Up The Atmosphere

Sad to be leaving beautiful Edinburgh? We understand. But, you don’t have to leave the excitement of the festival behind. We’re not just a campsite, we’re an official Fringe venue!

This year we’re very excited to be bringing our brand new Giant Tipi! Featuring our chill-out lounge, social areas, bar, and performance stage, so you can sit back and relax with a beverage and a delicious snack, and enjoy the show!

Over the years we’ve witnessed incredible performances by our guests, from magic to music to comedy! From teenagers getting on stage for the first time to impromptu lessons in the ancient art of making balloon animals, and sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll even get to witness our amazing staff share their hidden talents! Everyone is welcome to get up and give it a go, and be a part of the Fringe!

Enjoy Our Prime Location

We’re located at the Royal Highland Centre, just a stones throw away from the Edinburgh Airport, and an easy ride from Edinburgh City Centre. Buses run 24 hours to our campsite, so you can enjoy the festival for longer without worrying about checking-in.

Edinburgh Airport is just a 5 minute taxi ride away. If you’re flight is in the early morning, you can pre-book a taxi the night before, so you don’t have to stress about getting to the terminal on time. Otherwise, it’s an easy 20 minute walk from our door to the airport entrance (depending on how many suitcases you’ve filled with excellent souvenirs!)
