WITH ITS HISTORIC CITY ICONS, ITS EXTENSIVE GREEN AREAS AND ITS MYRIAD CULTURAL EVENTS, EDINBURGH IS A GREAT CITY FOR FAMILIES WITH KIDS.
If you go to Edinburgh in summer, be sure to spend a day at Portobello Beach with the family. While you savor the sunset from a beach cafe, your kids can eat ice cream and explore the old-fashioned amusement arcades.
PRINCES STREET GARDENS
You can pick up your edibles in one of the local markets when you go to this park, an ideal spot for a picnic in spring and summer. Lounge on the benches and bask in the view of Edinburgh Castle while your kids play in the park.
MUSEUM OF CHILDHOOD
With its collection of children’s toys and playthings, this is the world’s first museum devoted to “childhood history”. Your kids will get an idea about the past when you tour this venue, and you can revisit your own childhood.
