Crackin’ Easter Activities for Kids in and Around Edinburgh

The Easter break is fast approaching, and here’s hoping that we will have some spring weather by then. Below are some fantastic ways to keep your little ones having fun whilst on holiday from school.

Easter aboard The Royal Yacht Britannia

Scotland’s Best Visitor Attraction (VisitScotland)
Looking for something to do in Edinburgh for the Easter holidays? Step aboard Britannia for Easter fun for all the family and discover five decks with the audio handset guide and a special audio tour for children. Spot Clarence the Corgi and his friends hiding all over the ship in our Cuddly Corgi Treasure Hunt.

Don’t forget to look out for the LEGO replica model of Britannia, created using 40,000 LEGO bricks, and measuring over 11 feet in length.

Try out the different flavours of fudge, made on board, and enjoy milkshakes and cakes in our Tea Room. Spoil yourself with speciality teas, coffees and lunch where the Royal Family previously enjoyed family time of their own.

Easter Eggcitement at Almond Valley

Throughout the Easter school break, the farm is alive with the cheeps and bleats of baby animals, who will be introduced to you at handling and encounter sessions. Grab your clue sheet, sharpen your pencil, and tear around the farm collecting clues on the springtime trail. Keep a look out for hidden eggs that might win you a prize. In the craft area you can make bonnets, masks and other springtime decorations. There will be still further special attractions over the four days of Easter (30th March to 2nd April), including our famous plastic duck race along the mill lade.
