    Find Family Days Out In Edinburgh

    An ideal mix of old and new means there are lots of things to do in Edinburgh for families, with the chance to enjoy a city adventure unlike any other!

    Wander down the medieval avenues of The Old Town towards the castle, which sits regally on the mound and is home to the Stone of Destiny and Crown Jewels, or soak up the atmosphere in the streets of New Town that are littered with restaurants and shops. See the world through a different lens at Edinburgh’s Camera Obscura and World of Illusions with its range of optical experiences guaranteed to change your viewpoint!

    Older children will love discovering the dark depths of the dungeons on this Edinburgh family day out as live shows, actors and special effects bring this part of Scotland’s history to life in a jaw-dropping 80-minute show. The Museum of Childhood provides the perfect trip down memory lane for parents, whilst the treasure trail around the streets of the city is a family-friendly activity and an ideal way to explore somewhere new!

    Back in Old Town the brave can join one of witchery tours. If you make it out alive, head back up the hill to the castle to practice your sword fighting on the battlements as you defend the city beneath you!

    Want to check when the next school holiday is so you can plan your family days out? We've got a handy breakdown of the UK school holidays to help.
