Edinburgh's Christmas at the Botanics is back

Enjoy a magical evening of awe-inspiring visuals this festive season

It no doubt feels too early to be talking about Christmas, but if there is one thing to make an exception for its the spectacular event that is Christmas at the Botanics. This year the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh will once again transform into a winter wonderland like no other.

The garden's natural landscape and historic buildings provide the perfect backdrop for awe-inspiring visual effects that bring new life to the garden to be enjoyed after hours. Christmas at the Botanics will run from Fri 22 Nov–Sun 29 Dec 2019 and tickets are on sale now.

Over one million twinkling lights will illuminate the grounds this year, and a host of new displays offer a completely unique experience for visitors. New displays for 2019 include the Laser Garden and Festive Flotilla where glowing boats can be found on the garden's pond. Visitor favourites, the towering Tunnel of Light and Scented Fire Garden, return for another year.

Seasonal food and gifts will be available to ensure that warm fuzzy festive feeling is not missed. Guests can complete their experience with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate.

Christmas at the Botanics will run from Fri 22 Nov–Sun 29 Dec 2019. Tickets are on sale now.
