Historic Sundays

We want everyone to have experienced a great day out as we truly believe history belongs to us all, and that’s why we’re giving everyone living in Scotland free access to our sites on the first Sunday of every month.

Never visited one of our sites before? Now is your chance

This is a new initiative giving those who have never visited our sites before a chance to explore. Whether this be due to cost or you feel history isn’t for you, this is your opportunity to visit some of the most iconic sites across Scotland. We realise it has been a very difficult time for everyone over the past few years so join us on the first Sunday of every month, until March 2024 and get free entry.

Now is the perfect time to explore castles, abbeys, and more that you have not been to before. From Edinburgh Castle to Skara Brae, all visitors living in Scotland can book free tickets and enjoy a day out for less this winter! This offer is online only, tickets must be booked in advance. Proof of address will be required on arrival.

Tickets for Sunday 3 March are available now. Please keep an eye on this page for updates. This is the the last Historic Sunday for the 2023/2024 season, so you’ll need to book quickly to avoid disappointment.
