Is it Christmas yet?

2nd Sep 2014

With summer out of the way, it's time to start looking forward to the festive season! Edinburgh's Christmas promises to be the biggest and best yet, with brand new shows, markets, rides and attractions. Last year's festival was a record-breaking success with over 2.5 million visitors enjoying the new Big Wheel, taking to the sky in the Star Flyer, enjoying a trip on Santa's Train, watching shows in the magnificent Paradiso Spiegeltent and much more!

With 73% of residents saying that Edinburgh's Christmas was their sole reason for visting the city centre and over half of residents from outside Edinburgh visiting the city solely because of the festival, last year's Edinburgh's Christmas gave both locals and visitors a very special festive experience and made Edinburgh one of the best places in the UK to spend Christmas. This year's festival will continue this tradition with a bigger, better and even more festive experience for the whole family!

Edinburgh's Christmas is a Festival for everyone - there are several ways to get involved this year, click here to find out how.
