Best Edinburgh Christmas Events
Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat, and nowhere knows it better than Scotland’s capital city. As last year was slightly lacking in festive spirit, this time around we’re really going to have to make up for it, with more seasonal events than you can shake a candy cane at. From beautiful winter trails in a zoo to a screening of Miracle On 34th Street with bubbles, here are the best Christmas events in Edinburgh.
On the hunt for epic Christmas events that'll go down in the history books? Ballie Ballerson is at your service. Found in the city centre, this ball pit cocktail bar is bringing the entertainment by the bucketload, with late-night parties, boozy brunches and so much more.
When all else fails, you can always count on a delicious Christmas lunch with your nearest and dearest. Whether you fancy traditional turkey accompanied by all of the trimmings in swish surrounds or a quirky alternative washed down with themed cocktails, this city has got it all.
If you're spending Christmas in Edinburgh, events like Castle of Light: A Kingdom of colours are not to be missed. Edinburgh Castle will become a dazzling spectacle of immersive light shows and cool visuals, making it simply perfect for a unique date night.
Christmas At The Botanics is a magical way to spend an evening during the colder months. Follow the wonderous winter trail, which showcases illuminated flowers, tree sculptures and giant baubles. Need something to warm you through after? Check out the mulled wine and street food selection.
Cold Town House not only showcases unrivalled views of the iconic castle from its rooftop, but it also hosts some of the best Christmas things to do in Edinburgh. This year, it's hosting parties with live entertainment, cocktail sampling and even a few breakfast with Santa sessions.
