Christmas in Edinburgh

The Scottish capital might be more famous for its epic four-day street party in celebration of Hogmany, the Scottish New Year, but Edinburgh also hosts some of Europe’s most lively Christmas celebrations so head to the city in time to soak up the Christmas spirit.

Light Night kicks off the Christmas season on December 29th, when the city’s award-winning light displays and Christmas decorations are unveiled. A giant Christmas Tree, gifted from Norway, is erected on the Mound; the historic Dome restaurant puts up its famously inventive decorations including a huge upside-Christmas tree suspended from its domed roof and George Street shops compete for the most spectacular festive window displays.
