Christmas at the Botanics

Christmas at the Botanics

22 November – 29 December

The much-anticipated winter trail returns to the world-famous Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, now in its third year.

Along the route for 2019 you will notice exciting new installations; step into a Laser Garden where lines of light playfully bounce across the branches; enjoy the Festive Flotilla as hundreds of glowing boats gently bob on the shimmering surface and walk between larger-than-life icicles and neon spiral trees rising high into the night sky.

Returning also is the dazzling Tunnel of Light that sparkles with thousands of pea-lights and the mesmerising Scented Fire Garden. No Botanics trail would be complete without the Festive Finale at Inverleith House where brightly coloured projections dance in time to much-loved Christmas classics. Also, look out for Santa and his elves along the way.

Complete your walk under the stars with a cup of spiced cider, mulled wine or tempting treats. Alternatively, enjoy the seasonal menu on offer at the John Hope Gateway Restaurant.
