One of Edinburgh’s most popular festive season events, Christmas at the Botanics, returns for its third year from 22 November to 29 December. The highly-anticipated return of this after-dark festive extravaganza will see the Garden transformed with several new awe-inspiring attractions for visitors to enjoy.
Complete your walk under the stars with spiced cider, muller wine or hot chocolate along the route and gather around the fire-pit with family and friends.

The event runs from 22 November to 29 December (closed 25-26 Nov, 2-3, 9-10 and 25 Dec). There are 11 entry times to start your trail, every 20 minutes from 16.40 (last entry 20:00). The Garden will close at 22:00 on event nights.
This is an evening event that takes place after the Garden closes. It is an outdoor trail and does not include entry into the Glasshouses. Keep cosy by wearing warm and waterproof clothing and footwear.
