One of Edinburgh's most popular festive season events, Christmas at the Botanics, returns for its third year from 22 November to 29 December. The highly-anticipated return of this after-dark festive extravaganza will see the Garden transformed with several new awe-inspiring attractions for visitors to enjoy.

Step into a Laser Garden where dancing lines of light playfully bounce across the branches. Stroll toward the waterside reflections of the Festive Flotilla as hundreds of glowing boats gently bob on the shimmering surface and walk between larger than life icicles and neon spiral trees rising high into the night sky.

To those who have been before, rest assured the towering Tunnel of Light twinkling with thousands of pea lights and the mesmerising Scented Fire Garden will both return.

No Botanics Trail would be complete without the Festive Finale where brightly coloured projections dance in time to much loved Christmas classics.

Complete your walk under the stars with spiced cider, muller wine or hot chocolate and gather around the fire-pit with family and friends.
