The immensely popular winder wonderland and Christmas Markets are returning to the city center once again! with the added bonus for Edinburgh residents getting 20% off all attractions.

Royal Edinburgh Pass

We have just had some German visitors who thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Edinburgh.  During their time here they made great use of the “Royal Edinburgh Pass” which gives customers the chance to visit 3 of Edinburgh’s most iconic sights; Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and The Royal Yacht Britannia, as well as having 48 hours on the wonderful Edinburgh Open Top Bus Tour, a must do when in the city.

With the city getting in full swing for the Christmas celebrations, Edinburgh is a beautiful place to be over the holiday season.  The Christmas Markets and ice rinks will be open at the end of November and are a great place to get in the Festive cheer! With so much to see and do for everyone it is one for the bucket list!
