About Language and Landscape: Holyrood Park

In light of updated Scottish Government advice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken the decision to close public access to our staffed properties and offices until further notice. All planned public events will also be postponed until further notice – full details of these can be found on our Events page in the coming days: historicenvironment.scot/whats-on.

Explore Holyrood Park, as myth and history are brought to life through speech and British Sign Language Performance.

The event will be fully interpreted. No knowledge of sign language required.

This event is part of a research project, created in collaboration between Historic Environment Scotland and Kings College London, with contributions by Heriot Watt University.

This is a free guided tour.
