  • Day 1 Edinburgh
  • ​Make your own way to Edinburgh today, where your hotel is located in the heart of the Old Town.

  • Day 2 Christmas Eve Edinburgh
  • ​We'll get to know Edinburgh this morning on a guide tour which will introduce you to many of its highlights, starting with the iconic Edinburgh Castle which sits atop Castle Rock. Next we'll travel along the Royal Mile to St Giles' Cathedral with its famous crown spire, and we'll also visit Princes Street Gardens. This public park is set in a valley between the New and Old Towns. As well as a diverse range of plants and trees, it's also home to an interesting collection of monuments and memorials.
    This afternoon is free for you to explore further independently or in the company of your travelling companions. Maybe you'll opt to head back to Edinburgh Castle to see the treasures housed both inside and within its historic grounds.
  • Day 3 Christmas Day Edinburgh
  • ​It's Christmas Day, so enjoy a leisurely morning before gathering with your fellow travellers for a traditional festive lunch with all the trimmings.
    You can do just as you please this afternoon - maybe you'll head off for a walk in the Old Town or just relax at the hotel. We'll get together again this evening for dinner.
  • Day 4 Royal Yacht Britannia
