Edinburgh Christmas Market How Much It Costs To Ride All The Attractions
Christmas is a magical time in the capital but it can also be costly if you are headed up town to enjoy all of the festivities in East and West Princes Street Gardens.
With that in mind, Edinburgh Live wanted to make sure that you are prepared and aware of the costs of every fair ride and attraction in the city centre.
We all know how kids can get when they see flashing lights and hear the excited (or terrified) screams of people whirling upside down on a stomach churning ride.
