Visitors from around the world are staying at Edinburgh Festival Camping
It’s official, our visitors travel from all around the world to be in Edinburgh for the Edinburgh Festivals! Over the last two years, we’ve been visited by guests from at least 53 countries. FIFTY-THREE! Isn’t that amazing?
We are proud that our campsite is so multi-cultural, we think it is brilliant!
WHERE WILL MY NEIGHBOURS BE FROM?
Pre-Pitched Tents are a great option if you are flying, or just stopping over in Edinburgh. No need to carry any equipment, and you get the privacy of your own room for half the price of a 12 bed dorm in a hostel!
We’ve found that Pre-Pitched Tents have been the most popular amongst Europeans, visitors from the U.S. and Chinese visitors! This year, we had guests from 36 different countries stay in Pre-Pitched Tents… and we agree, if you’re from China or Oman or Indonesia, it would be a long way to bring your own tent!
MEET THE MOTORHOMERS
Motorhomes appear to be most popular among visitors from the UK, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands. But we’ve also have guests in motorhomes from Azerbaijan, Brazil and Swaziland amongst the Americas, Australasia and Asia!
We say, get to know your neighbours. You never know who you’ll meet, and you may even end up being invited to a big international BBQ! Bratwurst anyone?
WE SPEAK YOUR LANGUAGE
We have a number of volunteers who join us from around the world to help operate our campsite throughout August, and they bring with them their awesome language skills. This year we had volunteers speaking French, German, Spanish, Catalan, Basque (Euskara), Italian, Dutch, Portugese, Hungarian, Turkish, Russian and Arabic!
WHAT TO EXPECT OF THE FESTIVALS
The Edinburgh Festivals are the biggest arts and culture festivals in the world, and people travel from all over the world to represent their country, culture and arts. There is something here for everyone, so whether you want Spanish puppetry, Japanese drumming, African dance, Russian ballet or comedy and theatre from nearly any country in the world – Edinburgh is where you will find it and every variation imaginable!
COME REPRESENT YOUR COUNTRY!
If you haven’t visited the Festivals before, come and represent your country at Edinburgh Festival Camping! We offer the best value accommodation in town, with brilliant facilities, our own Fringe Venue and easily accessible public transport services into the city centre.
