Now in its fourth year, surround yourself with sparkle as the after dark trail lights up for 2020. You’ll find new moments to share with friends and family – brand new bright lights for winter nights.
You can book with confidence for Christmas at the Botanics. Come along knowing that the safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff is of the utmost importance to us.
Enter into a botanical world festooned with seasonal cheer enhanced by a soundtrack of festive classics. Wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in Christmas colour. There are hidden surprises too. Watch out as lights seem to tumble from the undergrowth and flash up trees like fizzing fireworks.
Immerse yourself within bouncing lines of light in the laser garden and discover giant luminescent sculptures rising high into the night sky. There are giant baubles and snowflakes where you least expect them and clusters of trees wrapped in ever-changing ribbons of colour. Inverleith House springs to life with choreographed beams of light dancing across its historic façade and the tunnel of light returns with twinkling splendour.
This year, why not pause for a moment of quiet reflection at the fire garden, aglow with hundreds of flickering flames.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas and complete your walk under the stars with mulled wine and hot chocolate*. Don’t forget to watch out for Father Christmas along the way.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Christmas at the Botanics are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
