Cultural institutions in Edinburgh report good attendance figuresDespite well publicised figures that show cultural institutions across the UK are suffering from the ‘Olympic effect’, Edinburgh’s galleries and museums are still reporting strong attendance numbers according to recent research by the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions (ALVA).

The latest reports showed that there were increases in attendances in the Scottish capital compared to attractions in London, with museums and galleries in Scotland as a whole rising by 16% from May to August compared to the figures from May to August last year.

It will come as little surprise to the thousands of culture vultures who make the journey to Edinburgh every year, with the beautiful city hosting an array of fascinating attractions suitable for the whole family.

Come and check the city out whilst taking a memorable break in one of the excellent hotels in Edinburgh over the coming months and see for yourself why the attractions are so popular.
