7 ideas for family fun in edinburgh

  1. Edinburgh Zoo – book tickets in advance to see the pandas as it can be busy on the day
  2. National Museum of Scotland – particularly the Build It exhibition
  3. Camera Obscura – make sure you have a camera as there are lots of opportunities for fun photographs
  4. Cannonball House – Gelateria – in the basement of the restaurant on Castlehill just before you get to the castle
  5. Edinburgh Castle – again, book tickets in advance to skip the queues and if you’re interested in seeing Stirling Castle as well the 3 day Explorer Pass might be of interest
  6. It’s Edinburgh International Science Festival time, so you’ll have plenty there to experience too
  7. We love to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh at any time of year, but spring is always a special treat
