What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

What’s On In Edinburgh – November 2019

Edinburgh November

November is here! We are now well and truly into autumn, the clocks have moved back and a chill is in the air. Nourishing November is our theme this month, inviting you to take care of yourself ahead of the overindulgences/decadence of Christmas feasts and family. We will be sharing healthy food recipes and recommending walks in the city to make the most of November in Edinburgh. Autumn is our favourite time of year to see the beautiful city of Edinburgh changing and watch the greenspaces become a flood of autumnal colours.

Why not discover Our Best Cocktail Bars  or see one of Dickins’ latest luxury properties for some home inspiration. We are really grateful to have teamed up with BABA restaurant to bring you a delicious prize in October and if you haven’t visit BABA before, read about them here.


There was a lot of chatter around town after The Dome put their Christmas lights up on the 14th of October this year, before Halloween! They aren’t the only ones getting into the spirit, our Edinburgh Christmas Markets blog can fill you in on some fantastic Christmas fairs and markets which will be taking place from now until Christmas! Be sure not to miss Jupiter Artland’s Christmas Fair and the Hopetoun House Christmas Shopping fair the last weekend in November.

A fantastic line up of comedians are gracing Edinburgh in November and what better way to nourish your soul than with a bit of laughter? Tim Minchin, Leny Henry and James Acaster are all bringing their shows to the capital city this month and we hope you can get tickets if you haven’t already.

Our highlight of November in Edinburgh has to be Christmas at the Botanics. Launching on the 22nd November, we love walking the gardens any day of the week, but with the ever expanding light displays, the Botanics is transformed into a natural wonderland. Get your tickets here, it’s a night not to be missed!
