Plan the Perfect Easter Break in Edinburgh

Easter is a time for new beginnings, family gatherings, and creating memories that last a lifetime. If you're planning to spend the Easter holidays in Edinburgh, you're in for a treat! The city is brimming with activities that cater to every member of the family, and we've compiled a list of must-do experiences to complement your stay at The Bruntsfield Hotel.

Only a 25-minute walk from the hotel to Edinburgh castle and local attractions, you have everything on your doorstep. The Bruntsfield area itself is a popular leafy district of Edinburgh to explore with a multitude of independent stores, cafes, restaurants, artisan food retailers and unique gifts. We also have our kitchen and bar available for guests to enjoy some homely food at The Neighbourhood.

When in Edinburgh, do as the locals do! Take a relaxing walk across the road in the Meadows, leading you straight into Edinburgh's historic Old Town. It's a perfect opportunity to digest the day's adventures and plan the next.

A Zoo Adventure with a Twist

Start your family getaway with a roar at the Edinburgh Zoo, where you can meet pandas, penguins, and a plethora of other wildlife. It's an experiential lesson in biodiversity and conservation efforts that'll captivate both the young and the old.

Magic at Camera Obscura

For a mind-bending experience, step into Camera Obscura and World of Illusions where your perception of reality will be tested with optical illusions and hands-on exhibits that are as informative as they are fun.

Science in the City

Continue the educational entertainment at the Edinburgh Science Festival taking place in the National Museum of Scotland over the Easter break. It's your chance to get hands-on with interactive exhibits and engage in workshops that fuel curiosity and creativity.

Easter Egg Trails

Easter wouldn't be complete without an egg hunt. Join the Royal Botanic Gardens Easter Egg trail where you can hunt for the golden egg. It's a wonderful way to discover nature while enjoying the thrill of the hunt.

Your Home Away From Home

After a day filled with explorations, retreat to the comfort and classic charm of The Bruntsfield Hotel. Located with prime access to the best of Edinburgh, our boutique townhouse offers stunning views, fluffy white towels and bathrobes, and a feast of breakfast options that add a special touch to your stay.
