Our Four Day Non-Stop Party - not for the faint hearted.
New Years Eve with us is not only HUGE, it is quite a special day. We start the party first thing in the morning with our famous Kiwi/Aussie/SA New Years celebrations. At 11am and 1pm we crack the bubbly for midnight back in NZ and Oz, then party on well into the afternoon. At dusk we head back into town where it’s your turn to join the thousands of mad Scots for the biggest street party in Europe - a real marathon. Will you make it to midnight?
It is not just New Years Eve that is a party marathon. With our Hogmanay tour, it is a 4 day party from start to finish!!
Our coaches drive up to Edinburgh during the day on the 30th and with plenty of refreshments on board, it is usually a great warm up. Immediately after checking into your city centre accommodation the real party begins with our exclusive pre-Hogmanay party at Edinburgh's top nightclub: the Espionage- which is open to 5am! New Years Eve is always special with us. Then on the 1st we give you a few hours to clear the head with an excursion to Stirling, the famous “Braveheart” countryside, before returning to the city for our New Year's Day party at Edinburgh’s famous Frankenstein pub. 2008 will certainly start of with a bang! Finally we drive back to London on Sunday the 2nd. Will you make it to work on Monday???
