If there is one thing we do well in Edinburgh it’s Festivals; from the Festival Fringe, our summer festivals, Hogmanay or Christmas we know how to throw a party and in 2017 our Princes Street Gardens, Christmas Market was named as the best in UK! This year is already shaping up to outdo its self again in one of Edinburgh’s most memorable Christmas festivals.

Edinburgh explodes in a festive frenzy there is so much to see and do across St Andrew Square, East Princes St Gardens and George Street as hot toddies & mulled wine pervade the air, ridiculous Christmas jumpers are worn and diets go out of the window! So, we put together a list of things to help guide you to our favourite things to see & do.


A true winter wonderland packed with tasty treats and delicious European foods along with beautiful handmade crafts you won’t struggle to fill your belly or a loved ones stocking! The traditional and romantic market wouldn’t be complete without an abundance of mulled wine, hot toddies (definitely try the apple gin toddy!) and festive music making it a great location for all.


The Christmas markets don’t stop on Princes Street Gardens and you won’t need Rudolf to guide you! Head over and see the dazzling lights and thrill yourself with rides for all the family on George street.
