Best spots to enjoy the spectacular Cherry Blossom show in Edinburgh

Best spots to enjoy the spectacular Cherry Blossom show in Edinburgh

Did you know that Edinburgh is one of the best places around the globe to see cherry blossoms?

Japan is the biggest name in the cherry blossom game, but you can also see these beautiful pink (or white) flowers in Edinburgh. Blooming times vary year-to-year, usually between the beginning of April and mid-May.

Edinburgh’s already a magnificent city all year round, but spring brings with it the heavenly scent of cherry blossoms in The Meadows. In this massive public park, the walkways are lined with cherry trees, creating a whimsical floral tunnel.

Here are a few of the best places in Edinburgh to admire mother nature doing her show:

The Meadows is for everyone, a walk, a run, a sit down, play football, walk the dog, barbecue, play guitar etc
Nothing more fantastic than the lush green grass with the pink and purple cherry blossom, sunshine and 20++ degrees, must do, see and live in Edinburgh!


Easter 2019: What to do in Edinburgh

Easter 2019: What to do in Edinburgh

Easter weekend in Edinburgh is always packed full of activities and fun days out, with special events taking place around the city. Along with the traditions of eating hot cross buns and exchanging chocolate eggs, there is plenty of choices if you’re looking for something fun to do this Easter…

The longer days give you hours and hours of playtime during your Easter holiday in Scotland. At this very special time of year, you could get some last-minute skiing done – if the snow has held on the mountains – and the next day smell the fragrance of the new spring flowers in a blossoming garden.

There are plenty of family activities to get stuck into too, from short walks that are ideal for all the family to top attractions that kids will love too. We’ve selected nice things to do this year:

Inchcolm Island
