HOW TO GET TO HOGMANAY
Some very important information on how to get to Hogmanay, because you don’t want to get lost on your way to the world’s greatest New Year’s Eve party.
Hogmanay is in Edinburgh, Scotland, and we’re going to get there by train from London, England. A private train. Just for us. Can you even imagine how much fun that’s going to be?
But before we board the party train we’re going to meet, and check you in, and give you a chance to meet your fellow Hogmananiers and decide who you want to sit next to, etc.
