Edinburgh is the perfect choice of destination for a young family. The city is very family-friendly, and there’s plenty to see and do. Visiting with a young baby will involve a bit more planning before you can go on a perfect trip.
The first consideration is the accommodation. Many hotels in Edinburgh cater to kids. Make sure your accommodation choice provides a cot. A kettle is also handy if you are weaning or bottle-feeding your baby. You should stay near the city center, so you’re within easy reach of the key sights and attractions.
Buying a ticket for the hop-on-hop-off bus is a great option. You’ll be guided around the city to get on and off as you please at the major sights. This way, you can visit the outskirts of Edinburgh without having to walk long distances or worry about getting a car seat in taxis.
In terms of things to do, there are plenty of options. Some of the best things to do in Edinburgh with a baby include exploring the Royal Botanic Gardens, visiting Edinburgh Zoo, walking in Princess Street Gardens, and visiting the Scottish Parliament. Traveling to the nearby coast, stopping for a walk along Portobello Beach is also a fantastic idea.
