Other venues:

Because of the size and historical layout of our venues it is not always possible to accommodate group visits where no prior arrangements have been made. Therefore, to minimise the possibility of disappointment, please complete the form below as far as reasonably possible in advance of your proposed visit, giving your preferred date and time and two alternatives. Note that the opening hours for some of our venues has changed.

If your party is large (over 20 people) it may be necessary to split the visits, either by time, venue or both. The Museum of Edinburgh and People's Story Museum, for example, are across the road from each other, and the Museum of Childhood and Writers' Museum are only a few minutes' walk up the Royal Mile.

Admission charges may apply in respect of the Scott Monument, Nelson Monument, Lauriston Castle and some City Art Centre exhibitions (see individual listings for details). Otherwise, group visits are free of charge but donations are always appreciated!

Please ensure that the screen shows the form has been successfully submitted before leaving this page. If all required fields are not completed correctly error messages will be displayed.
