Kids Birthday Parties

Space to run around? Check. Food? Check. Magical fort? Check.

We’re here to help you plan the perfect kids birthday party at Dalkeith Country Park. We can take group bookings for Fort Douglas for your whole party to relax in and have some food too.

The Bell Tent

Perfect for little adventurers, the magical Party Bell Tent is located near the Zip Slides in Fort Douglas. From the outside it might not look much; unzip it and reveal a gorgeous, fun space to refuel. And have cake of course.

The numbers

Our package is designed to have everything you need. It includes the hire of the Bell tent, entry into Fort Douglas and Children’s party food boxes. The price is £15 per child up to a max of 20 and 10 adults. There’s a minimum charge of £200. Loyalty cardholders get 10% off plus a free 30 minute natural craft activity – simply quote your loyalty number on booking.

Good to know

We can also offer additional natural craft activities for your party – let us know if you’re interested when you enquire and we can quote for this.

Parties are only available April-October. A 50% deposit is taken to secure the date and final payment is due seven days before the party.

There are to be no naked flames, including those used for candles on birthday cakes, to be used in or within proximity to the tent.

We have downloadable Fort Douglas invitations! You can download a PDF here.

I wanted to say big THANK YOU to you and the team that supported me during the Birthday Party. They were all fantastic, the tent was fantastic, the site is fantastic. It was the best Birthday for my son ever. I got lots of complements from all the parents and kids love it. Thank you so much.  – Linda, May 2018

Thank you so much for a totally amazing birthday party today. The tent was fantastic, the lunches were brilliant and of course the park was ace. All the kids absolutely loved it and I have a very happy little boy! Thank you so much for all your help. I’m actually back there for another birthday party in a few weeks time – I think it won’t be the last 🙂Caroline, June 2019
