Holyrood Park

In light of updated Scottish Government advice regarding Coronavirus we have taken the decision to close public access to our staffed properties and our events have been postponed until further notice. If you would like to keep up to date about our events please sign up to our newsletter.

There is so much to explore and investigate in our archaeology zone in Holyrood Park. Chat with archaeologists involved in archaeology across Scotland, learn about some of their exciting projects and have a go at hands-on activities. There's even an opportunity to visit a dig taking place in the park!

Holyrood is home to nationally important archaeological sites dating back thousands of years. Meet some of the archaeologists responsible for looking after these precious and fragile archaeological remains, hear first-hand about exciting research projects and have a go at hands-on activities.
