New Year’s Eve is famous worldwide for some massive celebrations from the harbourside festivities in Sydney to New York’s Times Square. In the UK there is no bigger celebration than Edinburgh’s Hogmanay!

The Festival

Hogmanay festivities run over a number of days and include the following:
  • Torchlight Procession (30 December): Hogmanay kicks off with the Torchlight Procession through the city centre from 7pm (reserve your own torch when making your booking!)
  • NYE Street Party (31 December): The big one! Our day party starts with NZ & Aussie NYE countdowns before Princes Street comes alive with over 80,000 people for the massive Hogmanay NYE Street Party!
  • Loony Dook (1 January): Hogmanay’s annual Loony Dook - a dip in the icy waters of the Firth of Forth at Queensferry. We'll be running our coach down to Queensferry in the morning for anyone wanting to have a dip in the freezing Forth waters or just watch the clowns that do!

Edinburgh

Edinburgh is one of Europe’s great cities with some excellent shopping and entertainment venues and of course its famous castle spectacularly situated at the top of the Royal Mile. There’s always plenty to see and do here such as discovering the history of the area at Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Houses of Parliament, and a lively entertainment scene centered in the Grassmarket below the Castle. Needless to say during Hogmanay Edinburgh is absolutely rocking!
