Twixmas is that period between Christmas and Hogmanay (New Year) when you can take time to reflect on the past year, whilst gearing up to celebrate the new one with family and friends.

Our central city location means you’re just a 5-minute walk from the shops, pubs and sights of festive Edinburgh.

We’re just a short walk from the city centre, where celebrations will be going on until the wee hours. Head to Concert in the Gardens and see Rag ‘n’ Bone Man sing live, or watch fireworks explode over Edinburgh Castle. At the Hogmanay street party, count down the New Year with new and old friends. Then, carry on the festivities in bars and pubs across Edinburgh. The next morning, start your day with a hearty Scottish breakfast at our MP’s Bistro. Then, if you’re feeling brave, take an icy dip in the River Forth at Edinburgh’s Loony Dook!
