East Princes Street Gardens

The Edinburgh Wheel

The Edinburgh Wheel, beside The Scott Monument in East Princes Street Gardens was one of the attractions for Edinburgh's Christmas and New Year celebrations in 2011.

There were also several other fairground rides and an ice skating rink in East Princes Street Gardens.

Some of the illuminated trees in Princes Street Gardens can be seen in the background of this photo.

Santa Train

Santa Train in Princes Street  -  Christmas, 2011

The Santa Train can be seen in the lower-right corner of this photo, standing at its terminus outside Jenners Department Store.  The train gave rides along Princes Street between Jenners and the West End during the Christmas Season, 2011, while Princes Street was closed to all other traffic except cycles until the new tram lines had been re-laid.
