Published on : Sunday, July 23, 2017

MidlothianThe school holidays are now well ongoing and, whatever the weather brings over the summer, there is plenty to do in Midlothian. Fresh from its starring role in the film Churchill, Arniston House is open to visitors until September 10 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday afternoons, with tours starting at 2pm and 3.30pm.

Arniston’s beautiful grounds are open from noon to 5pm on the same days free of charge. Also for history fans, each day Monday to Saturday, there will be a living history performer or activity on offer at Rosslyn Chapel, included in the day ticket or free to pass holders. The full programme, including the chance to meet a ‘medieval’ knight, musician or lady-in-waiting is on the chapel’s website. The National Mining Museum also has a programme of events over the summer holidays.

Each Thursday and Friday, there is a variety of things on offer including archaeology workshops, becoming fossil detectives and enjoying days of Victorian fun. The Edinburgh Butterfly and Insect World has daily feeding and animal handling sessions and there are great opportunities to let off steam at Ryze Ultimate Trampoline Park. The Visit Midlothian website has a number of different itineraries planned out on a variety of themes including adventure days out, heritage days out and wet weather options.
