Botanic Lights

As the nights draw in and daylight begins to fade, The Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh take on a magical glow as they transform into an enchanted wonderland of spectacular light and gentle shadows set to music for the annual Botanic Lights, now reborn as a festive event.

Visitors wend their way gently round a one and a half kilometre path where trees, fountains and buildings appear to take on a stunning new magical life. The Botanic Lights experience is quite mythical, leaving you with a sense of peace and inner calm.

The scents of Christmas are brought to life with refreshments including spiced cider, mulled wine, hot chocolate and roast chestnuts as well as marshmallows at one of the fire pits and don’t forget to keep a look out for Santa and his elves.

The visit takes approximately an hour and refreshments are available at the beginning of the tour and throughout.
