About Christmas at the Botanics 2017

New for 2017

The magical, botanical, illuminated trail!

Join us from 24th November to 30th December as the trees and Glasshouses of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh are spectacularly lit and all aglow in an exciting new after-dark trail through the gardens that is bigger, brighter and more spectacular than anything seen before.

Explore the sights and sounds of Christmas in this magical after dark experience, wander beneath the tree canopies bathed in seasonal colour and discover our scented Fire Garden.

Complete your Christmas treat under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air.
