If you’re planning your Easter Breaks in Edinburgh this year, we have some excellent suggestions to keep you occupied and your days packed full. From productions at neighbouring theatres, to popular festivals a short walk from Parliament House Hotel, the Easter holidays look to be a great time to visit.
The Edinburgh Playhouse
March is going to be busy at the Edinburgh Playhouse, with its stage production of Dirty Dancing taking to the stage. If you’re more of a comedy fan, check out the Monty Python Spamalot performance for some zany, and possibly weird, entertainment. The Playhouse is a short walk from Parliament House Hotel and we offer a great pre-theatre menu to make your evening special.
Enjoy the Opera at Festival Theatre
March brings a showcase of another kind as the Scottish Opera treads the boards with its production of Orfeo Ed Euridice. It’s a dressy affair, with the gents often in bow ties, but it’s worth the effort for a special night out.
Plants and Light at the Royal Botanic Gardens
One of Edinburgh’s most popular outdoor spaces is holding a series of unusual events this Easter. Bring the kids and you can make your own camera obscura, using cardboard boxes and other easy-to-find crafts. Alternatively, get your hands dirty by painting your own flower pot in an event sponsored by Lindt. It certainly is a different alternative to the traditional Easter Egg Hunt.
Magic and Mayhem at Edinburgh Castle
Not to be outdone, Edinburgh Castle has its own Easter holiday agenda. Meet wizards and warlocks, seek out hidden egg-shaped treasures and watch magic tricks as your tour this ancient fortress. Tickets will sell out fast, as they often do for the castle.
