Coronavirus (COVID-19)

David Livingstone Birthplace is currently close, however, the parkland and grounds are open 7 days a week and are free to visit.

The health and wellbeing of our visitors are extremely important to us and remains our top priority.

We are closely monitoring and following advice from the government as the situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) progresses. We want to keep you updated on the actions we are taking to ensure the safety of our visitors, our staff members and the wider community.

While our Centre currently remains closed, we are working hard to make sure we can re-open our Centre safely for visits later this year.

If you have any specific questions please do not hesitate to Contact Us.

We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project. Note: Please note that David Livingstone Birthplace (and the David Livingstone Trust) is no longer part of National Trust Scotland (NTS). NTS members will therefore no longer receive discounted/free entry to the Birthplace Museum.
