*EDIT: We are starting to re-open areas of both Restoration Yard and Fort Douglas. Read the latest update.*

At Dalkeith Country Park, Fort Douglas and Restoration Yard, the safety of our customers and colleagues is our number one priority. Fort Douglas is now open for pre-booked visits. Book your tickets HERE. At Restoration Yard The Larder and The Store are open. The Kitchen is open for pre-booked dining both inside and outside. Book your table HERE. However, if you are still shielding or would prefer to stay safe at home, you can still shop online with us or take part in a virtual class via Zoom.

The Park remains open for fresh air and local exercise. The Town Gate and our car parks are also now open. When visiting, please ensure you adhere to the Government’s social distancing guidelines at all times and stay at least two metres apart from others.

Normal Park rules apply – please do not bring BBQs or light fires in the Park and please be respectful of all Park users from walkers to cyclists, dog walkers and horse riders. See here for more guidance on multi-use paths. King’s Gate remains closed until we can open up the Park more.

You can read more about our re-opening plans here for Fort Douglas and Restoration Yard. Please note we do not have dates yet and await further instruction from the Scottish Government.
