Taking palace every weekend in August.
Step off the paths and have some socially-distanced family fun!
Discover tales of the long lost Royal Menagerie from 500 years ago, when lions roared in the Palace grounds. Create your own mini menagerie as you make an origami wolf, bear, bird or lion to take home.
Ready, steady, go! All the family can take part in our Royal Races – get set for the Faberge egg and spoon race, show if you are steady enough to balance a crown on your head, and get your hooves up ready for the unicorn run!
All activities are included in your Palace ticket. You can convert your ticket into a 1-Year Pass for no extra charge, enabling you to come to the Palace again and again for the next year, when we’ll have lots more activities for you to enjoy.
All events at the Palace of Holyroodhouse will be managed in line with COVID-secure procedures.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glorious Gardens are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
Join the Surgeons Hall Museums on their weekend walking tour through Edinburgh’s old town and hear tales of old Edinburgh, disease, dissection and curious methods of treatment.
