Edinburgh Christmas Market

The Edinburgh Christmas market has been running for the past 20 years and is extremely popular. The traditional and romantic Christmas Market in the heart of the City of Edinburgh offers a unique shopping experience for every visitor with its fair of various crafters, artists, gift shops and gastronomic surprises

The markets are open from the 22nd of November until Christmas Eve and is free to visit. The market is spread across three different areas:

European Christmas Market:

Around the Mound Precinct and East Princes Street Gardens

Children’s Market:

Located in St Andrews Square, the Market is the perfect destination for children and is great for festive treats and presents

Edinburgh’s Scottish Market:

Also located in St Andrews Square is a winter showcase of the best food and drink Scotland has to offer

Place to stay:

Why not stay in this amazing castle style hotel in Edinburgh, called The Scotsman Hotel, from £185.90 per room per night and make your visit to the market extra special.


I hope to visit this market this year after hearing such good things about it. If you’ve been please let us know what you thought…
