This Christmas is going to be different to normal.
Closed for visitors
Midlothian moves to level 4 on 26th December and so the Chapel and visitor centre will be closed to visitors until restrictions ease. Please keep checking our website or social media for updates.

An early gift
We are extremely grateful to our near neighbours at Dalkeith Country Park who have donated the Christmas tree, pictured, in the Lady Chapel.
As we look ahead to a more positive 2021, all staff and Trustees wish our visitors – past and future – a Happy Christmas and New Year.
