Edinburgh parents are set for a new spot to bring their kids to, with a play centre close to the city centre.

MakeBelieve is opening up at 3 Drumsheugh Place - a short walk from Princes Street. The new spot promises a "stylish indoor play space" with wooden playhouses, climbing structures, a ball pit, and more.

Owners have been teasing the opening on social media, sharing progress as the renovation continues. They've said the centre will encourage grown-ups to "build lifelong friendships and support networks".

MakeBelieve will not only a be a play centre, but a spot for birthday parties or events for wee ones.

On their site, MakeBelieve say: "MakeBelieve is a stylish indoor play space designed for babes and their grown-ups to interact, laugh, and have fun. The two-level space is filled with everything an infant to school age kiddo loves.

"Wooden playhouses and market stalls, small climbing structures, balance beams and a ball pit, creative toys and sensory stations, busy walls and a cozy book nook, even a few baby swings, slides and tunnels. We’re absolutely buzzing that MakeBelieve will have the legendary Big Blue Blocks from Architect David Rockwell and Imagination Playground.
