Join the Dynamic Earth team for a family-friendly walk in Holyrood Park, exploring Edinburgh's tropical past. Believe it or not, the land we now call Scotland was once a tropical paradise surrounded by warm, equatorial seas. Join this walk to explore hidden areas of the park to find evidence of a climate and an environment very different to the one we see around us today.
This walk is for children aged 5+ and their families. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Due to Covid guidelines the number of adults per household group cannot exceed the number of children. The walking group will meet at – and depart from – the main entrance at Dynamic Earth where the walk will also finish. The walk will last 1.5 hours. We will stop off at points of interest along the way but expect to walk for up to 10 minutes uninterrupted, including some inclines. We will mostly stick to gravel and tarmac paths, with the occasional grassy path too.
In Memoriam is a new touring artwork by Luke Jerram. The installation is a temporary memorial for the public to visit and remember all those we have lost from the COVID-19 pandemic.
This summer marks the ten-year anniversary of Ellie Harrison's artistic project Early Warning Signs, and the first opportunity to see the artwork reunited.
