Outdoor Family Walk: A Tropical Land
Outdoor Family Walk: A Tropical Land Saturday, 03 July 2021

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 venture to hidden areas of Holyrood Park where we can find the evidence of a climate and an environment very different to the one we see around us today.

This walk is part of the ‘A Land of Fire and Ice’ series of family walks with the Dynamic Earth Learning Team. Families are welcome to attend the whole series, but the session also works as a standalone event. The whole family is welcome but we advise that you may find it unsuitable for small children under 5.

Dates and Times: 

3rd July: 10:30am - 12:00pm

3rd July: 01:30pm - 03:00pm

Ticket price: Adult £7.00 / Child £5.00
