COVID19 - Know before you go

Visit us safely

We are based in East Lothian which is in Tier 4 of the Scottish Government COVID19 protection areas. This means our Centre is currently closed. However, we are very much looking to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so.

We are a conservation and education charity in the beautiful coastal town of North Berwick. Supported by our 5-star visitor experience. Dive in and explore the wonder of Scotland's marine environment with us in our interactive Discovery Experience. Soak up the coastal views from our Seabird Café, browse the sustainable gifts in our shop and get up close to the local wildlife on our seasonal boat trips.
