Time to treat yourself - Christmas comes early! Why not stop and recharge your batteries.
There is so much to do in the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh at any time of the year but from the end of November, Princes Street, the Gardens and St. Andrews Square in Edinburgh are transformed into a magical, festive fairground for all ages.
From the 18th November (until the 7th January) Christmas arrives in Edinburgh with the Ice Rink, Helter Skelter, Big Wheel, Double Carousel, Star Flyer, Christmas Tree Maze, North pole Slide, European Christmas Market, Childrens Market and the Scottish Market.
24 Doors of Advent is a real life advent calendar which l ets you open a door a day throughout December. Each day from the 1st December to the 24th December a building around Edinburgh that’s usually closed to the public, will open its door.
