Koolyst Kids September Hot List

Get the most out of Edinburgh as a family.


Edinburgh’s Koolyst City Guide

We love Edinburgh – it’s charm, history, cobbled streets, architecture, and it’s many festivals, including the world renowned Edinburgh Festival Fringe where our city becomes a culture hub for the whole month of August. Scotland’s Capital is full of amazing bars, cafes and restaurants, along with many theatres, museums and art galleries. You will be sure to enjoy some friendly Scottish hospitality when you visit.

Why not head along to the National Museum of Scotland, or visit the Palace of Holyroodhouse, or if you are feeling adventurous you can even climb Arthur’s Seat. Immerse yourself in the history of Edinburgh with a guided ghost tour, or learn all about Burke and Hare and their body snatching ways at Edinburgh Dungeons. And, if you are a Harry Potter fan then you are in luck, as Edinburgh is where it all started.
