A living past, exceptional urban amenities and a cultured, contemporary world view shape the Edinburgh City Region. Edinburgh is regularly voted one of the best UK cities to live in, and the city’s Old and New Towns collectively form a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Every August, Edinburgh hosts the biggest arts festival in the world, providing the impetus to sustain the cultural energy of the City Region throughout the year. International sporting events and seasonal festivals ensure that there is always something entertaining happening. Irresistible shopping and a wide range of pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants reflect its sociable way of life. Live, work and play amongst a wealth of scenic beauty, where the vision of the city’s architects complements the spectacular volcanic backdrop.
Edinburgh has 112 public parks and more trees per person than any other British city. You can go running in the park, mountain biking in the Pentland Hills, unwind with a woodland walk, or sit in the landscaped gardens and savour the breathtaking views. There is ample opportunity to exercise both mind and body at Edinburgh Technopole.
