Edinburgh Christmas Market & Shopping Weekend

Edinburgh Christmas Market & Shopping Weekend





4 DAYS FROM £209


Scotland’s cultural and governmental capital, Edinburgh, has much to offer its visitors – Edinburgh Castle (home of the famous Tattoo), The Royal Mile with its street entertainers and Arthur’s Seat are among its famous attractions, while Princes Street offers shopping of the highest standard.


Our base for the tour is the very comfortable LEA PARK HOTEL which is located in Grangemouth near Falkirk (just an hour’s drive from Edinburgh). This friendly family run hotel features a restaurant along with a lounge/bar where drinks and snacks are available throughout the day. All of the well furnished en suite bedrooms have tv, telephone, iron/ironing board, hairdryer and hospitality tray. Please note - there is no passenger lift (limited ground floor bedrooms may be available for those who cannot manage stairs on a first come first served basis).


During the festive season, the city comes alive with the annual Christmas Market. Enjoy delicious food and drink and traditional crafts at the Scottish Market on George Street or pick up unique gifts and goods at the European Market in the Mound Precinct.


Our Shopping Weekend includes two full days at your leisure in the city so you can ‘shop till you drop’ on both days - whether you’re looking for high-tech gadgets from leading department stores or a designer outfit from the boutiques in Multree’s Walk, Edinburgh city centre has something for everyone.


If you’re all shopped out why not visit the Castle, enjoy a fairground ride in Princes Street Gardens or try your hand at ice skating in St Andrew Square**
