While Edinburgh is known for its Fringe Festival in August, the winter months are when the whole city looks true to its medieval heritage. For some fun out in nature, take a walk through the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, which, from November 22 through December 29, features acres of festive and spectacular light displays (even prettier during a light snowfall). Pro tip: If you really want to get into the winter spirit, go ice skating at St. Andrew Square. When you need some warming up, head over to tour Edinburgh Castle, the city’s most iconic 12th-century structure, and learn all about Scotland’s rich history. From there, take a walk down the Royal Mile, where more museums and shops await, like the Museum of Edinburgh, the Museum of Childhood, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse (for those who are into the royals).
