Imagine festively lit streets, incredible live bands and one of the world’s most spectacular firework displays. Now add traditional dancing and more kilts than you can poke a bagpipe at, and you’ve captured just a glimpse of what Hogmanay in Edinburgh is all about. Get ready for one of the biggest New Year’s Eve parties in the world!
Join your Trip Leader and fellow Hogmanay punters and enjoy a festive introduction to this fabulous city at the annual torchlight procession. We’ll help to create a ‘river of fire’ as we join the annual torchlight procession.
The countdown begins. Kick off the day with some free time to explore the sights. Then, we’ve got you covered with tickets to the main event: an epic street party tonight to ring in the New Year. Expect stages of traditional, alternative and party music with a firework display to rival all firework displays. Edinburgh Castle provides the backdrop to this one. Happy Hogmanay!
Wipe the glitter from your eyes and start the New Year off right with a free day exploring the pretty capital. Tuck in to a post-party breakfast and then walk it off as you discover Edinburgh’s medieval Old Town, elegant Georgian New Town, gardens and neoclassical buildings. If you’re up for round two, there’s an optional pub crawl tonight.
Say bye to new friends after breakfast. We’re outta here! But the city’s yours for the taking if you’re keen to stick around.
