Things to Do


There are a series of stone monuments, intepretation panels, and fascinating locations around Prestonpans Battlefield. We have installed some signs around the area to help you find them, with the suggested starting point being Meadowmill Sports Centre car park if you are arriving by car.

If you are looking to explore the battlefield yourself, then we recommend that you take us with you! Download the app for free on either Apple or Android. There are QR codes around the battlefield in case you forget to download it in advance. The app also includes the 1722 Waggonway Trail, giving you another opportunity to explore the area. You can also browse the entire Prestonpans Tapestry, so you don’t even need to leave the house to enjoy it!

If you are part of a group, such as an historical society, walking group or school class, why not find out more about our guided tours.


We know you can’t always get to us in person, so here are some ideas for things you can do from the comfort of your own home or classroom.
