Visit the Scottish Parliament and take in world-class exhibitions and events, experience democracy at work, or just relax in our café.  The Scottish Parliament is open to everyone.

Please be aware that from Friday 30th June to Sunday 3rd September, the Debating Chamber will be closed to all visitors and tour groups while maintenance takes place. Guided tours will still operate at this time but without access to the Debating Chamber.  

Public access to the Scottish Parliament building otherwise remains as usual.


We want to share Parliament with you, so don’t forget to share your experiences of your Scottish Parliament using #ScottishParliament and #SeeingScotland!
