For centuries Prestongrange was a place of intense industrial activity. A harbour, glass works, pottery, colliery and brickworks have all left their marks on the landscape. Cradled by woodland with views out over the Forth the site is now a haven for wildlife where you are free to roam and explore monumental relics of Scotland's industrial heritage.

Discover giant machines such as the pit head winding gear and a Cornish beam engine, fantastic structures like the powerhouse and a vast brick kiln as well as coal wagons, a steam crane and much more besides. The site is free to visit all year round but it comes alive between between April and September when the Visitor Centre, exhibitions, café and other buildings are open. Take a guided tour with one of our knowledgeable members of staff and discover the history of the site – a story of monks, mining and industrial might spanning over 800 years. We also run a programme of unique fun events for all ages.

There is lots for kids to do at Prestongrange with activity sheets, outdoor games and toys and an indoor play area for smaller children.
