Living History at Melrose Abbey

Selected dates until Thursday 12 August 2021

Melrose Abbey

Home to the heart of Robert The Bruce, and this summer home to exciting performances as part of our Living History programme!

Between 1 July and 12 August at Melrose Abbey you can meet Robert the Bruce himself to hear first-hand about medieval life in Scotland, or discuss the essential role of the smith with a medieval blacksmith himself.

To hear more about what went on behind the abbey walls, a close friend of Margaret of Scotland will be on hand to fill you in.

Advance booking required

Tickets to our sites are free for all children under 16 as part of the Get Into Summer campaign (valid until 17 August). Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult.
