It’s the most magical time of the year, Edinburgh’s Christmas 2016 runs from 18th November to 8th January 2017.  It’s a perfect treat for festive fun in the capital of Scotland… and we’ll be jingling all the way at The Inn on the Mile this winter on a one horse open sleigh!

Each year, Edinburgh’s Christmas explodes in a festive frenzy with so much to see and do across St Andrew Square, East Princes St Gardens and George Street. The festival features a host of shows in the beautiful Spiegeltent, as well as ice skating, markets and rides, including the Big Wheel and the 60-metre Star Flyer, with breath-taking views over the city.

But what are our Inn on the Mile top recommendations that will leave you wanting to pull a Christmas cracker we hear you say?  Why not check out…

The spectacular Virgin Money Street of Light  has over 60,000 stretched lights along George Street for 2016, synchronised with specially commissioned recordings by choirs from across Edinburgh. Booking tickets in advance is advised.

St Andrew Square is a must visit and features a circular ice rink and bars serving something to warm you up!

The European Christmas Market in East Princes St Gardens and the Scottish Market at George Street have lots of great gift ideas and stocking fillers, delicious tasty treats from German friends along with foods from around the world!

Santa Land in Princes Street Gardens is an ideal treat for the wee ones and a perfect opportunity to meet the big man in red himself!

Are you a daredevil seeking a festive thrill?  Then the Star Flyer offers breath-taking views of the city… but not for the faint hearted!

Edinburgh’s Christmas really is the most magical time to visit the city and our The Inn on the Mile truly does have a perfect location in the heart of the Royal Mile to make the most of the fun!  Why not book a festive treat with a loved one, snap up one of our nine boutique bedrooms and join us this Christmas…
