Things to do in Edinburgh in November 2022

Halloween and Samhuinn may have passed but there's still plenty of things to do in Edinburgh in November. In fact, the darker evenings make it the perfect time to take one of our Edinburgh ghost tours. 

1. Doomed, Dead & Buried - All November

Take advantage of the early evenings on our Doomed, Dead, & Buried tour and visit The famous Blair Street Underground Vaults beneath the city and the Canongate Kirkyard on this adults-only ghost tour. The Blair Street Underground Vaults are the most extensive and deepest set of vaults under the South Bridge, lit by candles, and guided by a cloaked Storyteller, you won't believe some of the things that have taken place there.

2. Edinburgh Castle: Castle of Lights - From November 18th.

Another event you can enjoy in the darker winter months is Edinburgh Castle's Castle of Lights! See the castle lit up in fantastic holograms, each one telling its own tale. This year's theme is named Kingdom of Colours and has been expanded, so even if you've been before it's always worth visiting again. You'll also get to experience stunning views of the city at night from the castle. Get your tickets here.


3. Visit The Christmas Market - From November 25th

Edinburgh's famous Christmas market will return from November 25th. Browse a range of unique gifts and delicious delights at the Christmas market stalls, ice skating, amusement park rides and more. Discover more here.

5. Visit Camera Obscura World of Illusions - All November
