Edinburgh winter festivals
The winter festival has just finished in Edinburgh. For 6 weeks, from the start of December to the start of January, the city centre streets come alive day and night with:
- Outdoor skating in Princes Street Gardens (photo below)
- Christmas markets with plenty of tasty food and glühwein
- Ferris wheel, helter-skelter and other rides
- The Hogmany street party - about 80,000 people crowd into Princes Street to celebrate New Year and watch the annual fireworks display
There are more winter festival pictures over on our company Facebook page.
