Festive Edinburgh, The Royal Yacht & Historic York

Thursday 23rd - Monday 27th November 2017


Join us for this exciting pre-Christmas luxury break to the historic Cities Of Edinburgh & York with included excursions to the former Royal Yacht Britannia & the Alnwick Garden. 


From the winding medieval closes of the Old Town, to the grandiose Georgian crescents of the New, Edinburgh is a city that never fails to enchant. Packed with history, mystery and an astonishing collection of world-class attractions, there is plenty to see and do in the beautiful Scottish capital – a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Stroll the length of the picturesque Royal Mile, and pay a visit to imposing Edinburgh Castle, one of the top tourist attractions in Scotland. Follow in the footsteps of Mary Queen of Scots with a tour of Holyrood Palace, or imagine yourself setting sail on board the Royal Yacht Britannia, now docked in the port of Leith.


Edinburgh's Christmas event is a spectacular season of festive entertainment in the heart of the city. The event takes place in St Andrew Square, East Princes St Gardens, George Street and Festival Square, and features fantastic shows in the new Festival Square Theatre, as well as ice skating, markets and rides, including the Big Wheel and the 60-metre Star Flyer, with breathtaking views over the city. Plus we welcome the return of the Street of Light in an iconic new location on the west end of George Street! Illuminating Edinburgh’s New Town with a stunning light display set to music from celebrated local choirs and performers.


The festival is a fantastic Christmas celebration, and great fun for the whole family!
