Enjoy Edinburgh’s Winter Activities by Taxi

With so many things to do in Edinburgh in winter, you definitely won’t be stuck for choice - not with our drivers to take you there.

Enjoy Edinburgh’s Winter Activities by Taxi

The idea of spending forever trying to find a parking space at this busy time of year might be enough to put you off. Why not leave the car at home, wrap up warm and let Capital Cars take you from door to door? With our offer of 20% off* metered fares, you needn’t worry about your post-Christmas budget!

Here are some of the best winter activities in Edinburgh which are all quick and easy to get to by taxi.

  • Afternoon tea

Imagine sipping on a cup of tea, coffee or a glass of bubbles and tucking into an array of delicious and delicate sandwiches and cakes - all in warm, comfortable surroundings. What better way to cheer yourself up on a wet and windy afternoon? Edinburgh has many stunning venues for afternoon tea, including chic city centre hotels and luxurious stately homes.

  • Winter sports

You can visit the dry ski slope in Edinburgh at any time of year. However, if you want the authentic skiing or snowboarding experience without having to leave the city, visit the slope during the winter months. Lessons are available for beginners, while experienced skiers and snowboarders can spend the day fine-tuning their skills.

  • Watch an ice hockey match

Staying with the snow sports theme, why not book tickets to see a thrilling ice hockey match at Murrayfield Ice Rink? Matches take place most Sundays during the winter months and feature many of the UK’s biggest teams. Families, groups and individuals can also attend the ice rink during the public sessions to learn how to skate or to practice their skills. If you are going as a large group and would like to travel in the same taxi, check out our group transport services.

  • Shop till you drop

The start of year is the best time to bag a brilliant bargain. If you are looking for new clothes, replacement furniture or the latest gadgets, this is the best time to buy. Princes Street is a great place to start, but if you can’t find what you are looking for there, shopping centres just outside the centre of town, such as Ocean Terminal, the Gyle and Fort Kinnaird, are easily reachable by taxi.

No matter which activities take your fancy this winter, Capital Cars are ready to take you there and back!
