Christmas At Edinburgh Castle

From Christmas markets and famous Hogmanay celebrations, there’s no place quite like Edinburgh to celebrate the festive season.

And where better than in the city’s most iconic setting, the mighty Edinburgh Castle. Discover the traditions of a Victorian Christmas, from the origins of the Christmas cracker to who sent the first ever Christmas card and hear how Mary Queen of Scots would have celebrated Christmas.

For that extra special treat why not indulge in one of our Christmas Lunch packages. All Christmas Lunches include all day access to the castle.  Whether you are dining with colleagues, friends or family we have a Christmas package to suit you!


Sumptuous sandwiches, sweet treats, freshly brewed hot beverages or even a glass of Prosecco. Afternoon tea at the castle really is the icing on the cake and the perfect Christmas gift for loved ones and friends.
