Enjoy a Wild Day Out at VisitScotland's Tourism Attraction of the Year!  

Seabirds nesting, gannets diving, dolphins leaping, chicks hatching and seal pups snoozing - there's always something new happening at the Scottish Seabird Centre!

The five star award-winning Seabird Centre is set in a stunning location overlooking the islands of the Firth of Forth and the white sandy beaches of North Berwick. It's a great day out with something for everyone! In the exciting Discovery Centre - with amazing live cameras, you can zoom in for a nose to beak encounter with seabirds and marine wildlife - and there's always something new to see - puffins

and gannets with chicks in spring and summer and seals with pups in winter. There's a Wildlife Cinema, Kids' Zone, Migration Flyway & Environment Zone, Seabird Seafari Boat Trips (March-October) and an exciting programme of events all year round.
