Our volunteer guides will show you the Kirk


Join us for an official tour of Greyfriars Kirk and the Kirkyard!

Come and discover the inside history of Greyfriars – learn all about the history of the Kirk, our place in Scottish history, how worship has developed here over the centuries and which famous figures were laid to rest in our Kirkyard.

Tours take place every Thursday at 11:00 unless closed for a private booking. We regret to say that, if the Kirk is closed for a private event then, unfortunately, the tour will not run – see our Eventbrite page for dates of when tours are running.

Tours have spaces for up to 15. For larger, or bespoke groups or alternate days of the week (not Sundays), please click here to contact the Deputy Operations Manager for scheduling.

Tours are suitable for all ages and cost £8 for adults, and £6 for children under 14. Children under 5 go free (but a place must be reserved).  For groups of over 15 people, the charge is £6 for adults and £4 for children.

Our tours do not have a minimum number of sign-ups required to run – so don’t hesitate to book!
