What to do this weekend: 15-16 February

ALL WEEKEND

Valentine’s Afternoon Tea

Possibly my favourite ever afternoon tea location, the stunning Palm Court at The Balmoral has a special Valentine’s Day offer. While Valentine’s Day may have already passed, there is no reason why you should not treat a loved one (and yourself) with their Moët Chandon Impérial Rose Champagne afternoon tea. The offer runs until the end of February, so you have a few more weekends to book in.

 

16TH FEBRUARY, SATURDAY

After Burns with Buck & Birch

Buck & Birch have teamed up with award winning mixologist Miran Chauhan and this weekend they will be hosting a feast at Portobello’s Dalriada. The menu features welcome drink, canapes, a six course tasting menu paired with a wild drinks flight, and petit fours. Book your tickets here. You can also read our review of a previous Buck & Birch dinner here, we cannot recommend them enough!

 

17TH FEBRUARY, SUNDAY

Snowdrop Sunday

The snowdrops are out Edinburgh-wide, which means spring must be on its way. As part of the Scottish Snowdrop Festival, the grounds of Hopetoun open for one day only this February. The Snowdrop Sunday event will run between 10.30am and 4pm, fingers crossed for sunshine.

 

Have a nice weekend!
