2. The Botanic Gardens

As a mostly outdoor space, Edinburgh’s Botanic Gardens were actually open for most of the first lockdown. It’s a great way to get some fresh air with a friend and see some of the Botanic’s interesting greenery. Entry is free but due to current restrictions on numbers you’ll need to book a ticketed time slot before arriving.

Groups are currently limited to two people from two separate households.

3. Edinburgh Leisure’s Tennis Courts

Edinburgh Leisure’s tennis courts are a great way to fit some physical activity into your day and have fun while doing it. The courts are pretty popular so you should book ahead. You’ll need to bring your own ball and rackets.

You can book Edinburgh Leisure’s Courts at The Meadows or Craiglockhart here.

4. The Great Game Treasure Hunts

Do you love solving riddles? Why not try a treasure hunt by The Great Game. Once signed up they will send you an e-pack with all the materials you need to get started on your hunt. The activity should take between 2-3 hours.

The prize is a pub discount, not much compared to the price of the tickets, but it’s all about the fun you’ll have while participating. Due to the prize involving alcohol please ensure you have a valid ID before signing up. You can choose to work together with your team mate or spice it up by competing head to head. As most pubs are currently closed due to CV-19 you may have to wait to redeem your prize.
