Edinburgh Events in December

Your guide to the best activities, events and fun stuff happening in Edinburgh throughout December!

Wrap up warm. It’s December and that means winter has truly arrived and Christmas has begun. The skies are sparkling with Christmas lights, airwaves are buzzing with Christmas songs, office workers are swapping their salads for indulgent festive sandwiches, the best restaurants in Edinburgh and are even buzzier than usual and there are festive parties popping up all over the place.

But don’t worry if you’re sick of Christmas spirit already, as there are still tickets available for the Edinburgh’s Santa Pub Crawl and great, non-festive events to enjoy – as well as the epic Edinburgh’s Hogmanay to get planning. Here’s your guide to all the best events, Edinburgh’s Christmas dinner and cultural happenings taking place across the city of Edinburgh this December.
