Kids’ activities in Edinburgh: things to know before you go

Find inspiration for entertaining your kids in Edinburgh with these quick answers to some common questions.

Are there any ghost tours in Edinburgh?

Get into the Halloween spirit all year long with a family-friendly ghost tour that’s fun for everyone. Thistle Knights Tours deliver walking tours perfect for taking along your teens or little ones. Their Witches of Edinburgh tours are a spooky yet entertaining choice.

Alternatively, experience an afternoon with a difference on a daylight ghost tour with City of Edinburgh Tours. Your tour guide – dressed the part in full period costume – will take you around the Old Town Closes, while regaling you all with personal tales of days gone by.

Ever walked through Edinburgh’s Old Town and wondered what lays beneath? If that’s piqued your interest, find out more with a tour of the vaults from Auld Reekie Tours.

What are some outdoor activities for kids in Edinburgh?

Whether looking after you own, a friend or family member’s children, get them outside with these activities for kids in Edinburgh:

  • Paintballing

It’s easy to see why paintballing is so popular. Competing with or against friends and family members, you and your kids will run, hide and shoot, burning off steam and having fun splatting each other with paint.

At a Paintball Networks site just outside the city, you’ll enjoy a fully immersive experience followed up by a light lunch. Choose a deal for five, 10 or 15 (if you want to bring the extended family). It’s perfect for your kid’s next birthday party.

  • Scavenger Hunt

Think you know the streets of Edinburgh inside out? Put it to the test with a family scavenger hunt. The latest in fun family activities, these games only require a smart phone to get going. There are no other contestants, which means numbers don’t matter, so you can do it however many of you there are.

Check out Puzzling Adventures for games up to eight people in Scotland’s capital.

Are there any virtual reality games for kids in Edinburgh?

At The Realm VR in Edinburgh, you’ll find virtual reality games suitable for all the family. As well as options for a one-hour shooter, escape room or horror game, the company also provides experiences designed for really little ones. These include educational games and adventure options that will put them at ease and challenge them.

Where’s a great place for a kid’s birthday party in Edinburgh?

At Groupon, we’ve got loads of deals for kids’ activities in Edinburgh that make the perfect place for their next birthday party.

Bubble Soccer World at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange offers deals for up to 16 people for an hour’s activity. Choose from a fun range that includes combat archery, a game of dodgeball, goggle football or even a sports day. You’ll also find deals for 16 people to play bubble football – a guaranteed way to get even those with little interest in football running around and having fun.
