Edinburgh is a historic city with its Old town and New Town listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Old Town is famed for its cobbles and winding closes which lead up to the famous Edinburgh Castle which sits upon a dormant volcano. This can make parts of Edinburgh difficult to navigate for those with mobility issues. See Euan’s Guide for an introduction to Edinburgh and advice on accessibility.
Because many of Edinburgh's buildings are historic, some festival venues unfortunately are unable to offer modern levels of access for everyone. At Edinburgh Art Festival however, we aim to maximise accessibility for all, so please contact us if you want advice on access to individual venues. Please visit Edinburgh Art Festival on Euan's Guide for our dedicated Festival access information page created in collaboration with Euan's Guide. Each year we update this page to include information on all the venues involved within the festival.
You can download our accessible guide below for our 2019 Edinburgh Art Festival which will take place between 25 July - 25 August 2019.
