Edinburgh Father’s Day Inspiration this year



Searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift can often be difficult. If you’re struggling for ideas this year, have a look at our guide to the best ways to celebrate Father’s Day in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Whisky Festival

If your Dad is a fan of a dram, why not take him to the Edinburgh Whisky Festival? He will get to sample the best Scottish whiskies as well as samples from international distillers from as far afield as India, USA and Japan. Experienced exhibitors are on hand to discuss the complimentary drams giving you the chance to take find out more about what goes into making the whisky. There are also a range of blending workshops and cocktail masterclasses taking place for attendees. Buy your tickets for the Edinburgh Whisky Festival now.


Edinburgh Canal Festival and Raft Race

There are lots of activities in and around Edinburgh for a family-focused Father’s Day. However, if you are looking for something a bit more personal, The Edinburgh Canal Festival provides a fun and creative alternative way to spend your Father’s Day. The ever-popular Canal Festival is a fun-packed family day for everyone. Stroll along the waterside browsing stalls, listen to the live bands and even take a boat ride. Face painting, a bouncy castle and ponies are amongst the many activities for the younger festival-goers.


Gentleman’s Afternoon Tea

Mother’s Day introduces an array of pampering ideas for Mum, from spa treatments to Afternoon Tea, but wouldn’t it be nice if there was an Afternoon Tea alternative for Dad? Brewhemia Edinburgh have introduced a macho surrogate for the traditional Afternoon Tea. Cupcakes and finger sandwiches are replaced with hearty pies and full-sized sandwiches to accompany a crisp, cold pint for this Father-focused spread. Brewhemia’s rendition of Afternoon Tea offers the ideal, relaxing treat for Dad.


We hope this has filled you with inspiration for organising the best Father’s Day ever for dad. Keep up to date with our latest blog posts and exclusive offers by joining our mailing list here - https://lateralcity.scdn6.secure.raxcdn.com/lateral-city-newsletter
