The National Mining Museum Scotland are offering Edinburgh carers the opportunity to be part of a group tour of the museum and explore Scotland’s mining past. The National Mining Museum is a 5-star visitor attraction based on the site of the restored Lady Victoria Colliery in Newtongrange.

The tour is organised specifically for VOCAL Edinburgh carers and will take place between 10:30am – 12pm on Thursday 2 May 2024.  An ex-miner will guide the group through the museum, including two floors of mining exhibitions before finishing in the café for a nice cuppa.  The Museum has a free car park with disabled spaces and a ramp leading to the Museum’s main reception area.

Priority:  These tickets are limited so priority will be given to those carers who have not benefited from VOCAL Wee Breaks support previously.

Tickets: Two tickets per carer. This event is open to carers registered in Edinburgh.

(There is another tour organised for Midlothian carers – book here: National Mining Museum Tours (Midlothian) – Wee Breaks)

To Book: Click the ‘Request Break’ button above and the VOCAL Wee Breaks team will be in touch to discuss your request.
