Tours

All of our tours are individually arranged and booked via the Kirk Office and require a minimum of 2 weeks prior notice.

Please note that we are now unable to take any more bookings for July 2017.

Our guides find meeting visitors both enjoyable and satisfying, and as so many important events have taken place at Greyfriars over the centuries, there is something to interest every visitor.

Payment for tours can be made via PayPal in advance of the tour - once you have arranged a time and date, we will email you our PayPal link.

Tours in the summer season (April - October) can be booked Monday to Saturday and must take place within Kirk Office hours (9am - 4pm) or Kirk hours on Saturdays (11am to 2pm). Please check specific dates on our calendar, as we are sometimes closed for private events and services. The latest time a tour can be arranged is 3pm. 

In the winter season, (November to March), tours can be booked Monday to Friday and must take place within Kirk Office hours (9am - 4pm)

Please bear in mind that, as all our guides are volunteers and do not work fixed hours, we will not always be able to accommodate your preferred tour date.
