The Winter Windows form a magical pathway from West Parliament Square – outside St Giles to Newhaven. Each stained-glass window is designed by a budding young artist from Edinburgh’s schools to the theme of Kindness. This year’s Winter Windows is working in conjunction with St Giles Cathedral.

Winter Windows will be popping up at the following locations:

West Parliament Square – St Giles Cathedral

Great Michael Rise – Newhaven

North Street – Ratho

Royston/Wardieburn Community Centre - Pilton

St Patrick Square - Nicholson Street



While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Winter Windows are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
