Last night we saw fireworks going off all over Edinburgh from our Edinburgh Festival Apartment HQ, it was a lovely clear night so they were very loud and you see them everywhere across the city skyline.
Its amazing in these times of austerity people still manage to find money to buy fireworks and keep with old traditions. Myself I have always hated fireworks unless the are organised displays like the one at the end of the International Fringe Festival – Virgin Money Fireworks or the New Year Celebrations in Princes Street Gardens. I have to agree watching these displays along with some classical music is really uplifting!
Edinburgh is famous for its New Year street party and most of our Edinburgh apartments are already full but we are still having many inquiries every day for people looking to come for just Hogmanay. Most of our Edinburgh Apartments can only be booked for two or three night stays at that time of year so its worth bearing in mind that there are many things going on in the city from the 30th of December like the torch-lit parade down the Mound which sees out the old year – this can be seen from our Edinburgh apartments in the Royal Mile, it is up at Calton Hill where we also have some great Edinburgh Apartments.
We also have many large families and groups staying together in our Edinburgh party apartments like Lothian Apartment where all the family can stay and there is a huge lounge and kitchen to have a great party in. The good thing about Edinburgh Lothian Apartment is its only 5 minutes from Princes Street so if you have passes for the street party you can pop back to the apartment throughout the night.
Our fabulous Edinburgh Townhouse Apartment in Haymarket is also a great place for a group of friends as it has 7 en-suite bedrooms and bathrooms and a huge lounge with a bar to make your own New Year cocktails. This Edinburgh Townhouse Party Apartment would even be a great place for a few friends to rent between Christmas and New Year to have a get together and prices would only be around £25 each for a night – just give us a call if you would like us to work out a great wee bargain get together for you and your friends that want to stay in Edinburgh Apartments either to party or even just to visit the January sales.
