The official countdown is on – Christmas is coming! Edinburgh’s Christmas organises festive celebrations every year, and this year, there is more to do than ever.

Edinburgh’s Christmas Market

With magical Christmas markets in St Andrew Square and East Princes Street Gardens, there are plenty of places to grab a toasty mulled wine, enjoy Christmas rides and partake in some ice skating!

Rides & Attractions

The Big Wheel offers fantastic views of the city, as does the Star Flyer – from 60 metres above street level…do you dare?

Santa Land offers the chance for the kiddies to meet Santa, while the ice rink allows children to learn and enjoy skating while the adults show off their skating prowess, or enjoy a mulled win from the sidelines.

24 Doors of Advent

Edinburgh’s Christmas is running a real-life advent calendar which lets you open a door a day. Each day from 1 – 24 December, a building around Edinburgh that’s usually closed to the public will open its doors, and it’s all completely free.

Most importantly, our beautiful self-catering property, Rock House, will be open to the public on December 10th.

Rock House is a unique and historic Edinburgh property, and, for the first time ever, it will be available to rent for self-catering holidays. Recently renovated by world renowned Studio Reed, there is no doubt that Rock House will be a hit – after all, it’s the most stylish and unique property in Edinburgh!

We can’t wait to see you there on the 10th December. Don’t forget, we will be running some fantastic giveaways with Edinburgh florist, Narcissus Flowers – stay tuned for more information.

(Clue: Your house could look even more festive this year than usual…!)
