Edinburgh is promising sparkle galore today with the unveiling of spectacular Christmas plans for the city centre, backed by the Capitals biggest winter marketing drive ever.
Edinburgh is the best city in Britain for a Christmas break. Scotlands Capital is stunningly beautiful for the rest of the year too but at Christmas, it becomes truly magical experience, the heart of Edinburghs winter festival and here’s why.
Christmas shopping, winter family fun and lots of other activities take place in a sparkling Edinburgh city centre. Hardly any other city on the world has the ability to bring excellent shopping and the magic of Christmas so close together, and at the centre of Edinburghs capital as well. Events and festive Christmas celebrations take place throughout the city from Princess Street itself with the Gardens, the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle in the Old Town to George Street in the New Town.
The winter festival in Edinburgh lasts for more than a month, starting with the Christmas lights switch on in late November, followed by Christmas time in fairytale-like Edinburgh, and finally, finishing off with the Hogmanay 4-day long celebrations.Serviced City Pads.
There’s no doubt that the best thing about Christmas in Edinburgh is the Winter Wonderland, a mix of fairground rides, Ferris Wheel, outdoor Ice Rink, hot food stands, Christmas Fair and traditional German Christmas market. These are still open for visitors for nearly 4 weeks.
Other Christmas events include the Santa Run, Edinburgh’s attempt at breaking the record for the largest gathering of Santas, the Reindeer Gardens in West Princess Street Gardens and carol concerts theoughout Scotlands Capital. Serviced City Pads.
Our Iconic Torchlight procession remains the favourite with Hogmanay festisval goers of all ages. The event created a dramatic ‘river of fire’ throught the city, form the Royal Mile to Carlton Hill.
The procession, which has been a record crowd of around 25,000 in attendance, was led off from the City Chambers by the Up Helly Aa Vikings and massed pipes and drums. A trail was blazed through the centre of Edinburgh, down the Mound, along Princess Street and into Waterloo Place on its way to Carlton Hill. The culmination of the process on Carlton Hill saw lighting of fire scultures along with music and other performers.
The evening concluded with a sensational fireworks display that wowed the crowd and sent everyone on their way for the remaining Hogmanay festivities to come.
Our brand new spectacular event, Boogie wonderland is set to be the funkiest gig in town and will give partygoers the perfect chance to dust off those platforms and get dressed up to the nines. A full-on tribute to the seventies hosted by the boogieman himself, organisers are calling for ticket holders to dig out those shiny catsuits, don those flairs and chessy moustaches and groove under the glitter ball to a truly Top opf the Pops, seventies soundtrack featuring a whole cast of retro tribute bands.
