Historic Sundays

History belongs to us all, that’s why we’re giving everyone living in Scotland free access to our sites on the first Sunday of every month.

Plan your days out for less

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 to our iconic sites across Scotland.

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 7 January will be available soon. Keep an eye on this page for participating sites and to book your Historic Sundays tickets, or sign up to our newsletter to be alerted.
