This year Edinburgh Christmas is throwing it back to Christmas past with shows such as “A Bottle of Wine and Patsy Cline” and “Silent Discos” while incorporating beloved children’s tales such as “Cinderella,” “Arabian Nights,” and “Shark in the Park” that will harken you back to your childhood Christmases creating a feeling of nostalgia that will help you stay cheery during exam time in December.


Rides and Attractions

Carnival Rides are always a welcome sight and this year is no exception. Edinburgh Christmas has outdone itself bringing in balloon rides, candy cane bungees, carousels, chair-o-planes, Christmas Tree mazes, crazy cars, helter-skelter, ice adventures (ice skating & ice walls), merry-go-rounds, race-o-ramas, rollercoasters, and reindeer rides and tickets are all under ten pounds!


Free Events

The free events of Edinburgh Christmas are perhaps the most welcomed aspect of the festival every year. This year the Christmas Markets in East Princes Street Gardens and on Georges Street will both offer a unique, festive shopping experience for every visitor with its array of crafters, artists, gifts and tasty delights. Additionally, Light Night on 19th November is sure to be a night to remember highlighting the true spirit of the festive season.
