One of the Capital’s most prominent buildings has been turned into a giant advent calendar as part of the festive season celebrations.

Forget chocolate, historic images of Edinburgh in winter will be projected onto the face of General Register House with one revealed each day throughout advent.

The giant advent calendar will be projecting 24 glimpses of Edinburgh Winters from years gone-by dating back to the 1700s at various times from 5.30pm to 10pm daily, meaning residents and visitors will have to keep their eyes peeled when passing.

The free event is new to Edinburgh’s Christmas action-packed diary as part of a drive to ensure attractions are more spread out around the city.
