Winter activities in Edinburgh that won’t break the bank

Winter Activities in Edinburgh

We are now officially in 2022. The Christmas lights are gone, the trees are tucked away safely in lofts, and we're left with a list of sometimes unattainable new year's resolutions. What is there to look forward to? We often forget that every season has its beauty - even the cold and dreary winter months. To aid any minds stuck in a new year rut, VisitScotland has teamed up with businesses across to country to give us a few ideas for fun winter days out with as much as 50% off; as we know, everyone's budgets are still in Christmas recovery.

There are so many fantastic activities to try out here, right at our doorstep. The Scotch Whisky Experience is ideal for warming up on these cold winter days. An expert guide will reveal the secrets of whisky regions through a tour through a replica distillery. The World's Largest Whisky Collection allows you to find your perfect "dram" and then taste it right then and there.    

Silent Adventures takes you on a silent disco tour of Edinburgh's streets through song and dance. Taking part in this musical adventure will have you serenading passersby as you perform funky moves and belt out banging tunes. Headsets equipped with high-tech speakers will fill your body with beats, theme songs, and guilty pleasures from every era. 

You shouldn't miss Escape The Past - a historical escape room centre if you like a bit of history and adventure. The Anatomist, a 19th-century grave mystery set in Edinburgh, is brought to life through an immersive and dark experience. The Anatomist mystery takes place within Edinburgh's old surgical district, inviting visitors to step into the laboratories of an anatomist from the 19th century and discover a mysterious and murderous world.
