Forget Times Square, the Hogmanay New Year celebrations in Edinburgh, Scotland, are said to be some of the biggest in the world. Translated, Hogmanay means 'last day of the year', yet the celebrations extend beyond just one day. Festivities kick off on 30 December and continue on until 1 January, sometimes even 2 January.
The world famous Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party attracts more than 80,000 visitors and features live bands, DJs, enormous screens and of course the midnight fireworks display where five tonnes of fireworks illuminate the night sky.
While the atmosphere of Hogmanay is unsurpassed, take time either beforehand or afterwards to enjoy the many other attractions Edinburgh has to offer, including galleries, museums, shopping, first class restaurants and of course Edinburgh Castle. The easiest way to do this is with a Hogmanay holiday package. Choose from our range of options below or contact a consultant on 133 133 for assistance.
