Scotland: Christmas in Edinburgh



Ten Hill Place Hotel is the venue for this special festive break, where each year they can’t wait to put the Christmas lights up and get the mulled wine simmering. Located in the historic Surgeons Quarter of Edinburgh’s Old Town, it’s within easy walking distance of Princes Street with its shops and Christmas Market on one hand, and Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat on the other.

 We are welcomed with the aforesaid mulled wine along with mince pies and other seasonal treats before enjoying a delightful Christmas Eve dinner. A relaxed Christmas Day follows (how nice it is for someone else to be doing all the cooking and washing up!) including a four-course Christmas lunch with all the traditional trimmings and (exclusively for our guests) a light supper in the evening. On Boxing Day you can hit the shops and the sales, or alternatively join our complimentary excursion into the beautiful Border country to the south of Edinburgh, with dinner included once again back at the hotel. Our festive break concludes the following day as we return to our original departure points.

 Please note you may also travel independently to and from Edinburgh and join the group at the hotel, with check-in available from 3.00pm. Extra nights before or after are available on request.

Day by Day Itinerary

We depart from your local pick-up point and head to Edinburgh where we have arranged a guided tour of St Giles Cathedral, which has been a working church for almost 900 years and played a prominent part in both the Lying-in-State of Her Majesty The Queen and the ‘Scottish Coronation’ of His Majesty The King. A donation towards the upkeep of the church is at your discretion.  Later we transfer to our accommodation at the 4-star Ten Hill Place Hotel, where a gift from the hotel team awaits. We will get into the Christmas spirit by relaxing in the cozy lounge and enjoying warmed mince pies and a glass of mulled wine or delicious hot chocolate topped with marshmallows. Later we will enjoy a delightful Christmas Eve meal in the hotel’s Drinks and Dining Restaurant.
