Scotland's festival for puffins
At Scotland’s Puffin Fest we celebrate one the most popular seabirds: the puffin! We want to spread the word about the importance of conserving and protecting our seabirds for future generations, while having lots of family-friendly fun!
Most events are included with admission, unless otherwise stated.
Photography workshops, Edinburgh Sketcher workshops and boat trips must be booked in advance.
Simply request the tickets for the events you would like to attend on arrival at the Centre. All tickets are subject to availability. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Get FREE entry to Puffin Fest by building and bringing in your own LEGO bricks puffin creation. This is applicable to one person per group/ family and not applicable to boats. For all the details click HERE. Have your picture taken and be added to our online puffin gallery.
As well as all the Puffin Fest activities, there will be lots of puffin treats in the Gift Shop, as well as puffin-inspired delights in the Seabird Café.
Make sure you pick up your Puffin Passport and go on a tour of North Berwick. There are fantastic prizes up for grabs.
Jump on board
In addition to the Puffin Express, there are a whole host of other boat trips where you may see puffins, including landing trips to the Isle of May and the chance to see Craigleith on board the Seabird Catamaran Cruise and the Three Islands Seabird Seafari. Book your boat trips in advance wherever possible.
Members get free entry to Puffin Fest (excluding paid-for events), plus discounts on the boat trips and in the Seabird Café and Gift Shop.
