Alpen Travel Tips: Christmas in EDINBURGH

Edinburgh - stronghold of the North and one of my favourite cities in the world. With it's magnificent castle perched high-up on the volcanic rock, it lords over the city below and dominates the night sky with its majesty for miles around.


In my recent visit to Edinburgh, I was surprised to find out that they have their very own spectacular Christmas market - in fact they have TWO! The one I discovered is nestled beneath the castle in East Princess St Gardens. 

They not only have quaint wooden huts selling crafts and wares, however they have built a whole theme park, including rides and a Ferris Wheel to entertain.

The market runs from 18th November through 6th January. More information can be found here: Edinburgh Christmas Markets


Besides visiting the Castle (a MUST when in Edinburgh), and walking (and shopping) up and down the Royal Mile, - not to forget sampling Haggis and Scottish beverages in the many pubs along the way, my niece, Nicole, and I decided to try out an evening haunted walk.
The legendary
Greyfriar's Bobby

We chose to do it up royally and booked the "Double Dead" double feature haunted walk which takes one into the super scary haunted vaults under the city and ends up in the Covenanter's Prison in the  Greyfriar's Graveyard. 

It was a full moon night and well worth it to learn about and see "the darker side" of Edinburgh. Our guide was fantastic and left us all with shivers.

I have so many more suggestions of things to do in Edinburgh, but have run out of room on this BLOG post. Feel free to EMAIL me with questions or for more of my suggestions. I love sharing my favs with my fans!
