Bonfire Night

Bonfire Night

Type: Festivals

Remember, remember, the fifth of November...

Commemorating Guy Fawkes Day, the failed 1605 Gunpowder Plot, Bonfire Night is often celebrated with bonfires and fireworks displays. We recommend walking up Calton Hill to see the fireworks show - both the official one and the sparkling bursts of lights and lanterns that are set off around the city. Do be cautious, as the fireworks and lanterns can often lead to unexpected fires, especially out on Edinburgh's many hills.
