REVIEW: Castle Of Light - A Kingdom Of Colours | Christmas at Edinburgh Castle

"Fun illuminations... full wall projections, there's a kaleidoscope of colours on show."

The folks at Edinburgh Castle invited me along to their Castle of Light - their magical and colourful event this festive season.

A Kingdom of Colours is a brilliant family activity, from fun illuminations to full wall projections, there's a kaleidoscope of colours on show.

The kiddos can even meet our Red Rampant Lion, Rex!

A mighty fortress, the defender of the nation and a world-famous visitor attraction – Edinburgh Castle has dominated the skyline for centuries.

This most famous of Scottish castles has a complex building history. The oldest part, St Margaret's Chapel, dates from the 12th century; the Great Hall was erected by James IV around 1510; the Half Moon Battery by the Regent Morton in the late 16th century; and the Scottish National War Memorial after the First World War.

The castle houses the Honours (Crown Jewels) of Scotland, the Stone of Destiny, the famous 15th century gun Mons Meg, the One o' Clock Gun and the National War Museum of Scotland.

In addition to guided tours provided by the castle stewards, there is an audio guide tour available in eight languages. The audio tour takes the visitor on a tour around the castle, explains its architecture, and tells its dramatic history. This guide is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Mandarin.
