Looking to get into the festive spirit? Look no further than the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh. From 24 November to 30 December, the gardens burst into a magical, botanical outdoor trail of light guaranteed to leave you feeling warn and fuzzy - no matter the temperature outside!

As darkness falls, the fire garden flickers into a hypnotic carpet of dancing flames while the crystal lawn is illuminated by a thousand lights. Listen out for the choir of trees - a woodland grove of 'singing' conifers - and don't forget to wave to Santa and his elves.

With so much to see and do in Edinburgh this winter, why not treat yourself to a festive break at family friendly Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel.
