Book online for the Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick, an award-winning five star visitor attraction with panoramic views over the sea and sandy beaches. Although only 30 minutes from Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, the area is home to some of Europe’s most spectacular wildlife and the town of North Berwick was voted Scotland’s most beautiful town in 2009.
With amazing live interactive cameras, visitors experience a nose to beak encounter with thousands of nesting seabirds and marine wildlife, including puffins and gannets with chicks in spring and summer and, in winter, seals with newborn pups. Bottlenose dolphins have also become frequent visitors this year.
Enjoy the Discovery Centre and programme of events and workshops. Gift Shop. Café with deck overlooking the sea and sandy beaches – licensed and serving delicious meals and home-baking all day. Boat trips to the islands and landing trips to see the famous Bass Rock gannets, according to David Attenborough, “one of the wildlife wonders of the world” (Mar-Oct). Only 30 minutes by train from Edinburgh.
The Seabird Centre is ideal for groups and makes a unique setting for corporate events, private parties and weddings.
