Adverse Weather Plan and Cancellation Policy

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh operates seven days a week and monitors weather conditions on-site each day. During Christmas at the Botanics, the weather is continuously monitored by both the venue team and the Christmas at the Botanics trail team in order to heighten customer safety.

A decision to cancel the trail on any given night could be made for the following reasons:

- Ice or snow

- High winds.

- Fallen trees, broken branches, or tree limb damage

- Flooding that significantly impacts conditions underfoot.

Please note that the decision to cancel Christmas at the Botanics will be taken as early as possible on the day of the trail, usually by 2pm. This timing enables the trail team to monitor any improvements in the situation that might make it possible to open the trail safely.

Next Steps - How to re-book or get a refund

- If Christmas at the Botanics is cancelled, customers will receive an SMS and email from 2pm onwards on the day of the trail to inform them of the cancellation.

- Following this, SEE tickets will contact customers to outline the options available to them.

- Customers will be sent a re-booking code before midday the next working day. This can be used to rebook tickets worth the equivalent financial value to any future timeslots of the trail, subject to availability. Customers will also be able to purchase additional tickets and further add-ons at an additional cost, if required.

- Any credit is valid for a period of 13 months and can be transferred over to the following year's trail.

- If the above options are not suitable, SEE will have 28 days to validate the refund, ensuring that the re-booking code has not been used, and make the payment (this includes print at home customers who need to send in their printed tickets). All refunds will be completed by 28 February 2022.
