Enjoy a delicious festive lunch at Edinburgh Castle whilst taking in the breath taking city views from our newly refurbished Jacobite Room. Over at Stirling Castle from Dec 15 dine in the intimacy of the castle’s Green Room and enjoy a delicious traditional festive lunch. Both lunches include all day access to the castle giving you enough time to explore after. Don’t forget to stop by the Christmas Shop on the esplanade at Stirling Castle. It is free to enter and packed with beautiful decorations and gift ideas.
Our Christmas events at Edinburgh Castle have something from everyone. Learn more about the festive traditions and the origin of the Christmas card in our Traditions and Tales of a Victorian Christmas. Or perhaps you may bump into Mary Queen of Scots in the Great Hall as she tells us how she celebrates the festive season.
If you are looking for a Christmas present that won’t be forgotten by Boxing Day then our Historic Scotland membership is ideal. Our winter offer means you will get three months extra free when you buy online.
As always we’d love to see your festive photos. Share them with us @welovehistory.
