Edinburgh Birthday Party Guide



Build My Birthday Party

Why Edinburgh?

Dominated by its medieval castle, Scotland’s capital boasts one of the most dramatic city skylines in the world. It’s also got fantastic nightlife, world-class museums and a well-earned reputation as a shoppers and pub goer’s paradise. A perfect location for your Edinburgh birthday party!

When in Town?

Enjoy the view from Edinburgh Castle which sits proudly at the top of the city or climb up to Arthur's Seat to see some of the best views of Edinburgh. Navigate your way through the stores on both Victoria and Princes Street which are known by locals and tourists as a shoppers' haven. If your group are up for a laugh, visit Edinburgh during the annual Fringe Festival in August which has a great atmosphere.

Our Top Tip

Edinburgh is best explored by foot, discover interesting shops and cafes off the beaten path.


What to Do

With so much to offer, you're in for an epic group birthday weekend in Edinburgh. We recommend taking on your friends on your own Highland games, paintballing or the escape rooms.

We have plenty of activities for foodies. You could enjoy some lunch and try your hand at mixing cocktails in a central bar or get sticky on a chocolate making workshop. Make pizzas like mama in our pizza making workshop, with a glass of prosecco in hand.

A Night To Remember

Group birthday weekends in Edinburgh tend to get a little messy. The city doesn't sleep and is certainly awake 24/7. Edinburgh has more places to eat per head than any other UK city and you'll easily be able to start your night with a tasty gastronomical feast.

Spook yourself silly on a ghost tour before finding out if the Dreamboys are wearing anything underneath their kilts. Our favourite places for groups in Edinburgh include live music, enjoy a meal and a jig as the music cranks up a gear.

Having a Sleepover

A busy day of activities or a crazy night out calls for a comfy place to rest your head. We know exactly where all of the best places to recuperate on your Edinburgh birthday weekend are. Our contacts include 3 star hotels in the city ideal for large groups, budget rooms with breakfast included and even luxury accommodation with leisure facilities.

Book a night at one of the major hotel chains located in the heart of the capital. Our partners include the purse-friendly Travelodge, the best all-rounders Marriott and Mercure and not forgetting, Jurys Inn.
