Leith Festival Open Day

About Leith Festival Open Day

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.

Come and visit Trinity House during the Leith Festival for a day of maritime history and activities for all the family.

On 13 June we will be opening out doors to the public. Visitors to the house can take a self-guided tour, watch a film about Leith’s maritime history and see our new exhibition celebrating the Year of Coasts and Waters.

For younger visitors, why not take our bug trail and find out all about museum pests?

You can also find us on Leith Links for object handling fun and a chat about local history.

Useful information:

Free car parking is available for users of the Kirkgate Shopping Centre and is limited to 90 minutes after which a charge applies
Free on-street parking is available nearby
Disabled access to the ground floor of the house only
