Cheap flights to Edinburgh
There is so much for kids and adults in Edinburgh's Christmas, it's no wonder the event lasts over six weeks. Take to the sky for some cracking views from the Big Wheel, lose yourself for a while in the Christmas tree maze, explore Edinburgh's iconic buildings in 24 days of advent, do a spot (or a lot) of Christmas shopping at the market, glide gracefully across the ice at the skating rink in St Andrew Square, or just relax with a spiced hot chocolate and watch the world go by surrounded by fairy lights.
Edinburgh's Hogmanay is the capital's world-famous and enduringly popular New Year festival, attracting visitors from all corners of the globe. Taking place over three packed days, there are fireworks, ceilidhs, concerts, torchlit processions and - for serious outdoor enthusiasts - the annual loony dook' swim in the River Forth!
On the western outskirts of the city, it takes a bit of time and planning to get to Jupiter Artland but it's more than worth the effort. Wander through the woodland taking in specially commissioned sculptures by world-class artists as you go, and then marvel at the grassy land and water forms created by Scottish artist Charles Jencks. There's also an excellent cafe and shop on site. https://www.jupiterartland.org/
In the middle of the East Lothian countryside and worth seeking out, the Archerfield Walled Garden has enough going on to make it a whole day trip from the city. There's a large, light-filled cafe, cosy bar area, deli, gift shop and long walks around the pretty grounds. Kids will love the wishing tree and outdoor play area, with deer roaming freely all around.
