New Year in Edinburgh

Edinburgh's  Christmas and Edinburgh New Year, or Hogmanay as it is known in Scotland, are the city's two major festival events in winter.

New Year in Edinburgh has long been regarded as the world's centre of celebrations, with a four day extrvaganza of events, shows and of course a stunning display of fireworks from Edinburgh Castle at midnight on 31 December.

A street party for some 300,000 people is something to behold along with well known bands on a stage beneath the castle ramparts and huge screens at vantage points around Princes Street - come to Edinburgh and experience the real Scottish Hogmanay - Edinburgh at New Year!
