When you really want a sense of summer escape, whisking the children off to Edinburgh over the summer holidays will feel a million miles away from home.
Bargain hotels in Edinburgh from Travelodge ensure you can spend longer in the city to make the most of your stay and visit an array of local attractions.
Edinburgh is unlike anywhere else in the UK - a break here is a cultural experience with all the elements of an extraordinary summer stint.
Educate the kids on the history of the area visiting sites such as Edinburgh Castle and lesser-known, medieval Craigmillar Castle.
The town is rich with British heritage, including the Palace of Holyroodhouse – the Queen’s residence in the capital of Scotland – and the moored Royal Yacht Britannia, just on the outskirts of the city.
Kids will love a day at Edinburgh Zoo. One of the largest in the UK, there are over 1000 species beyond the black iron gates.
Conveniently located centrally in the city, Edinburgh Zoo is three attractions rolled into one. Enjoy a full day exploring the sealife in the zoo’s aquarium as well as the main animal zones. Break up your day with a spot of lunch and take a stroll through the charming gardens.
Book hotels in Edinburgh from Travelodge for the best rates on accommodation during the Fringe Festival. Running from 3 to 27 August, the Fringe Festival has plenty on the programme for children of all ages.
