6th July 2014 - Event closed

Wednesday 2nd July 2014

The programme for today will be a visit to Dirleton Castle and Tantallon Castle followed by a visit to Lennoxlove House - and tea with the Duke of Hamilton, where we will be entertained by the Haddington Pipe band.

We will be given an action display of medieval weapons at Dirleton.

Only the ground floor of both castles is accessible for visitors using wheelchairs or with limited mobility, but the grounds can be explored.

For lunch, you can bring a picnic from your hotel, or visit a local cafe.

The estimated cost, including entry and coach, is £25.

Entry to Lennoxlove will be by pre-purchased ticket only. Here we will take tea with the Duke and Duchess of Hamilton.  Details of what else will be happening will be confirmed later.

Please note that to join this trip, you must have previously registered.

Her Majesty The Queen will be in Scotland this week, and the Duke of Hamilton has important functions to perform during her visit.  If he is required to attend a royal event on this day, we will still have the opportunity to visit his home, and meet the Duchess.


Tickets, timings and pick up arrangements will be provided in your welcome pack.
