Edinburgh’s Christmas
If you’re lucky enough to be in the land of Hogmanay, you can enjoy celebrating the New Year into 2nd January with a double Bank Holiday!
The Christmas Market doesn’t shut up shop until 5th January, so there’s still time to get your mulled wine fix and browse the stalls. And if you're looking for a spectacular sit-down, shows like cabaret sensation La Clique are also on until Saturday, so there’s never been a better excuse to party on.
Read our Christmas Markets guide for more ideas, many of which are still open for the first few days of 2019.
