Important things to keep in mind
There are three main entrances to the event: Princes Street West End, South St David Street and Bank Street. This is a very busy, all-standing, outdoor festival event so please dress for the weather.

Please note Street Party tickets do not allow access into the Concert in the Gardens or the Ceilidh under the Castle with Edinburgh Gin events.
What’s it all about?
Hogmanay is the Scots word for the last day of the year and is synonymous with the celebration of the New Year (Gregorian calendar) in the Scottish manner. It is normally followed by further celebrations on the morning of New Year’s Day (1 January) or, in some cases, 2 January—a Scottish bank holiday.
Hogmanay is the perfect way to start 2018. As you can imagine, tickets are selling fast. If you are planning your trip to our capital city, please plan ahead. Accommodation at this time of year is in high demand. Bed and Breakfast accommodation at B+B Edinburgh is perfectly located with quick access routes to all the Christmas festivities.
