Planning your visit

There are a number of local shops and galleries for you to visit.

Buy freshly grown seasonal herbs, fruit and vegetables from the organic Palace Garden.

Only assistance dogs are permitted inside Culross Palace and the Palace Garden.

We welcome children of all ages, but we ask that buggies are stored in our safe place while you explore the property.

Please note that last entry to the Palace and Gardens is 45 minutes before closing time, and the shop will close 10 minutes before the Palace. 

Please see our drop-down Facilities below for more helpful information about planning your visit.
