Christmas at the Botanics

November 24th, 2017 - December 30th, 2017

The magical, botanical, illuminated trail...

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when the trees and Glasshouses of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh are spectacularly lit and all aglow. There’s something for everyone at this festive event, a one mile illuminated trail that winds its way through the world famous Garden providing a magical experience after dark. This year, the new 2017 winter trail is a botanical wonderland inspired by the Garden itself. As you enter, greeted by the sights and sounds of Christmas, wander beneath the tree canopies bathed in seasonal colour.
