Celebrate Christmas in Edinburgh

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Christmas in Edinburgh is even bigger and brighter than ever before. Breathtaking attractions, spectacular shows, shopping, food and drink merits something for everyone this festive season.

The Christmas markets take centre stage stretching from St Andrew Square and East Princes Street Gardens offering a superb selection of mouthwatering continental and Scottish cuisine along with an eclectic range of quirky and unique gifts. The capital boasts not one but two ice-rinks to spin and twirl or simply watch the world go by with a warming Gluhwein. The sky's the limit for the brave at heart and you can soar to dizzy heights on the Star Flyer or Big Wheel taking in the magnificent views.

Residents with an EH postcode can take advantage of a 20% discount on shows, rides and events on top of great family discounts.
