Christmas & NY Opening Hours 2017

13th Dec 2017
Christmas & NY Opening Hours 2017

It's here already! As you prepare to spend time eating mince pies and making merry we thought we'd share this very important information.

All of our staff and tour guides will be taking a well-earned break and so we close our Blair Street Underground Vaults over Christmas. It also means our History Tours and Ghost Tours are unavailable for just a few days.


Christmas Eve Sunday 24 December
Christmas Day Monday 25 December
Boxing Day Tuesday 26 December

The good news is we're OPEN all over the New Year, or Hogmanay, as us Scots call it.
We will finish our tours early on New Year’s Eve at 5pm, to allow our staff some time to enjoy their New Year too.

Remember - the beautiful torchlight procession takes place on Sat 30 December. We advise arriving early at our meeting point and planning your journey, to avoid congestion. 

If you're visiting Edinburgh over Christmas or New Year there's lots to keep you entertained. Check out Edinburgh's Christmas and Edinburgh's Hogmanay and of course, don't forget to sign up for one of our walking tours.

Have a very Merry Christmas from all of us at Mercat Tours. We can't wait to see you in 2018!
