Stone of Destiny and Highlights Tour

A standard tour during opening hours will include access to the Stone of Destiny experience and highlights of the Museum displays. Where time allows this can also include access to the temporary exhibition on at the time of your visit. (Details of temporary exhibition programmes can be found in the What’s On section.) Costs without temporary exhibition access are:

  • Duration: 1 hour (dependent on group size) During opening hours generally 9.30am earliest available start or else this becomes an Exclusive Access Tour)
  • Groups (10 pax +): £8.00pp (min charge of 10 pax/£80)
  • FITs (9 pax or less): £9.50pp (min. charge of 5 pax/£47.50)

All our tours are led by our knowledgeable and friendly Visitor Experience team members. We can also arrange for a curator-led tour which provides deeper, specialist knowledge of a subject area if that would be useful. There is an additional charge for this type of tour.

Groups larger than 30 persons will be placed into smaller groups for ease of movement around the Museum. It should be noted that the Stone of Destiny experience takes about 10 minutes to complete in groups of no more than 15 plus a tour guide.

Tours before and after our public opening hours can be arranged with a minimum of 8 weeks’ notice. These can be tailored to suit interests and an example of costs for a 1 hour tour are set out below.
