The best kids' things to do in Edinburgh

In Edinburgh you can do anything from gaze at 14th century Italian art at one of the city's best galleries, to having your palate, and intellect, stimulated by the latest in neo-bistronomy at some of Edinburgh's best restaurants. That’s not going to cut it with the kids however, especially when they've got an October half-term break to fill (from Saturday October 10-Tuesday October 20). Fortunately the city also offers attractions that go ‘moo’ and ‘grrr’ as well as others that make your children go ‘woo’. RECOMMENDED: the full guide to half-term in Edinburgh for kids
