Days out with Kids in Edinburgh on a budget

Looking for ideas for cheap days out with kids in Edinburgh? Here are my top five suggestions. It is definitely possible to have a fun day out with kids without breaking the budget.

National Museum of Scotland

Entrance to this enormous museum is free. You could spend the whole day here if you have older children, but even with younger kids, we can definitely spend a fun couple of hours exploring the amazing Animal World room (complete with T-Rex skeleton) and the Adventure Planet area. I look forward to seeing more of the museum as they get older. A trip here is my go-to on a rainy day when I’m looking for cheap days out with kids in Edinburgh.

Cramond Island

If you’re in the mood for an adventure, I can’t think of a better one than walking across the causeway to Cramond Island (not buggy friendly unfortunately). Just make sure you check the tide times to make sure you don’t get stranded!

Royal Botanic Garden

This is an amazing place for toddlers to burn off all that energy, not to mention incredibly educational. A wonderful place to have a picnic whilst watching the squirrels scampering about. Entry is of course free.

Hope this blog post has been helpful! Do you have any other ideas for days out with kids in Edinburgh?
