This winter, discover a show of legend, light, mystery & magic at the iconic Edinburgh Castle.
Returning to Edinburgh with even more magic than before, Castle of Light is set to come to life for 8 weeks throughout the festive season.
Expect wonder, enchantment and a spectacle of colour, as dazzling animations sweep throughout the castle grounds, transforming this historic attraction into an interactive wonderland - using stunning visuals, state-of-the-art projections and captivating storytelling to unravel the re-discovery of the Crown Jewels. Explore lesser-known stories from the castle's past, as Rex, the castle’s famous red lion, guides visitors through a mesmerising journey.
The event will take place from Friday 19 Nov 2021 to Sunday 9 Jan 2022, Thursdays to Sundays (excluding 24, 25, 31 December and 1, 2, 6 January), from 4.30pm to 10pm (with last entry at 8.30pm). It is suggested that you allow around 90 minutes to fully experience the show, but you can take as much or as little time as you like.
On Thursday 25 November extra assistance will be available to allow the event to be accessible to visitors with specific access needs. Places will be limited so that the castle is quieter on that night, and staff will provide support to visitors with dementia and autism.
On selected dates, VIP packages are also available. One, designed with families in mind, includes admission to Castle of Light between 5pm and 5.15pm and dinner at Edinburgh Castle's Queen Anne Room at 6pm. The Crown Jewel VIP Package allows adults to upgrade their experience with a two course meal accompanied by Edinburgh Gin cocktails, admission to Castle of Light between 7pm and 7.15pm and dinner at Edinburgh Castle's Queen Anne Room at 8pm.
