Are you feeling festive yet? Edinburgh's world-famous Christmas celebrations return to the city centre between 16 November 2018 and 5 January 2019.
Edinburgh is bracing itself for the biggest, brightest and most comprehensive programme of Christmas events and entertainment seen in Scotland’s capital city, to date. It’s anticipated that hundreds of thousands of people, from all over, will descend upon the city centre to enjoy this outstanding spectacle.
Voted best Christmas Market in the UK last year, East Princes Street Gardens Market offers a vast range of local delicacies, European themes and general festive bonhomie to keep you warm on these crisp winter days and frosty evenings. For example, if you like whisky, or just want to escape the chill for a short while, the Johnnie Walker Bothy Bar situated on a two-floor bar on Mound, serves a variety of whisky cocktails and hot toddies that will surprise and delight, showcasing the unique flavours from the four corners of Scotland that go into creating the Johnnie Walker blend.
A Range Of Fantastic Attractions
Provided you don’t suffer from vertigo, there are fabulous rides and attractions that those of all ages can enjoy. These include the Forth 1 Big Wheel and the ever-popular Star Flyer. At nearly 60 metres tall, the Star Flyer offers a panoramic view of the Edinburgh skyline, which is quite simply breathtaking.
For the young and those young at heart, St Andrew Square Ice Rink is the magical frozen heart of Edinburgh's Christmas. The festive season just isn't complete without a spin (or a stutter) around the UK's only elliptical outdoor ice rink, followed by hot chocolate or hot cider in the Rekorderlig Cider Lodge. If the little ones have been good this year, a trip to see Santa in his Grotto in Castle Street is also a real treat. For slightly older visitors, theatres across Edinburgh have teamed together to deliver a superb programme of festive entertainment. Amongst other events, the famous Spiegeltent returns to Festival Square, playing host to La Clique Noel Part Deux and a brand new interactive musical show You Choose, offering fun for all ages.
After it’s spectacular success in 2017, Winter Windows returns.This unique creative project encourages Edinburgh's young and budding artists to showcase their talents in streets and community hubs. Winter Windows will be displayed in West Parliament Square outside St Giles' Cathedral and will also be present in other locations slightly off the beaten track.
