DAY 1 - London to Edinburgh

London

So special is the new year ahead of us that is goes by its very own name. This isn't just your average turn of the calendar - we're doing Hogmanay! When we join forces in London today our good spirits will be flowing: the emotional kind, not yet the boozy kind. 

Edinburgh

After we weave our way through the prettiness of England’s north & into Scotland, we will find ourselves in Edinburgh, our base camp for the next 4 days. Home to William Wallace, this city is all about historical cool. With it's Castle on the hill, cobbled streets and no doubt kilt-clad locals, the capital of the land of haggis and whisky will impress. But first up, we settle into our swanky nest before we get orientated with the city and start the festivities.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • City orientation walk of Edinburgh

DAY 2 - Edinburgh - New Year's Eve

Edinburgh

Thousands of people from all across the world making mayhem on the streets, dancing under fireworks & soaking up live music aplenty - welcome to New Year's Eve Scottish style! Take a late start to the day before enjoying some good food and winter city magic before the party begins. Your included ticket to the festivities is exactly what you need to start the night off on the right foot. Ice-skating, carnival rides, and dancing anyone? We say yes.

DAY 3 - Edinburgh - New Year's Day

Edinburgh

Though the parties will still be kicking on across the city, this day is yours to ring in the new year as you see fit. A late breakfast, a city stroll and a spot of shopping might be all your danced out feet can muster. But for the more adventurous types, join the New Year tradtion and parade down the street before taking a dip in the freezing Firth of Forth for a charity plunge. If you're not tired out, then channel your Scotsman and head for a stroll to Arthurs Seat for the city's best views. Ahh Edinburgh, we're in love. Tonight, why not join the group for dinner and a show and hear bagpipers do their thing over some delicious local eats.

DAY 4 - Edinburgh to London via Gretna Green

Edinburgh

There you have it folks - the world famous Hogmanay! Never again will you have to read a "Top 10 places to do New Year" in a fit of jealousy. Pack your bags and get ready for a bit of a snooze on the drift back to London. But we still have one thing in store for you...Gretna Green. Way back when, Gretna Green was THE place to go to get married outside the laws of England for those that were not quite yet of legal age (sorry Mum!). We'll stop for a bit of history and a few laughs, then head back on the road to London Town. 

Gretna Green

London

Nothing like NYE to form a few bonds. Say goodbye to your new pack of soul-mates & soak up the final remnants of your best party on record.
