5.0 out of 5 stars How come nobody thought of this before?, 2 Nov 2010
This review is from: Edinburgh Unlocked (Unlocked Guides) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ignore the ghastly cover illustration - the contents of this book are excellent. This guidebook to Edinburgh and its surroundings is aimed directly at children and encourages them to to make their own decisions about what to see and do. Each of the 48 attractions has its own double-page spread and there is just the right amount of background information on each. The book features a very wide range of destinations including castles, parks and beaches to appeal to all youthful tastes. 'Stuffier' places like galleries and museums are also included, but as an Edinburgh resident I can confirm that the authors have taken care to select the ones which will appeal most to children. 41 of the attractions are in the City itself, but 7 are further afield, including Stirling Castle (better than Edinburgh Castle in my opinion) and the Museum of Flight, which features Concorde. Children can rate each attraction afterwards using the sticky stars provided.

For parents there is a guide to opening times and admission costs, where relevant, and web addresses for further information.
