The Christmas Market will also feature a variety of rides and attactions for all the family to enjoy, including the Forth 1 Big Wheel and the ever-popular Star Flyer. Standing at nearly 60 metres tall, the Star Flyer will offer a different view of the city full of Christmas cheer.
The St Andrew Square Ice Rink is the magical frozen heart of Edinburgh’s Christmas. The festive season in Edinburgh just isn’t complete without a spin around the UK’s only elliptical outdoor ice rink, followed by a warming cup of hot chocolate or hot cider in the Rekorderlig Cider Lodge.
