I recently took a day trip to Edinburgh to visit the Christmas Markets. The Christmas Markets are one of the highlights of the winter season in Scotland, a spectacular six week season of festive entertainment featuring a packed calendar of events, attractions and festive markets.
For the past 20 years in the heart of Edinburgh, the popular European Christmas Market has been held in its picturesque setting below the Mound, featuring a variety of crafts, gift shops, food and drink there is something for everyone. Just beside the European Market in Princes St Gardens you will find The Children’s Market situated in Santa Land it offers child friendly festive experiences such as the Santa Train.
The Scottish Market can be found in St Andrew’s Square and is a showcase of some of the best crafts, food and drink that Scotland has to offer. Christmas in Edinburgh features numerous events and attractions all over the city centre with various rides and attractions, ice skating, shows and free events. There is so much to see and do and the wonderful atmosphere leaves you feeling very festive. Edinburgh sure is sparkling this Christmas season and if you get a chance to visit the city it is on until the 4th January 2015.
Here are some of my photo highlights!
