Water of Leith Visitor Centre

Door open days



Formerly the Slateford School House, the Water of Leith Visitor Centre is a unique attraction to the city. It was extensively renovated thanks to funding from the Millennium Commission and City of Edinburgh Council, with the building design by Malcolm Fraser Architects and the interactive exhibition space by James Carter. It was opened in April 2000. 



Key Information

Architect: Malcolm Fraser Architects

Visitors will enjoy access around the building, free entry to the interactive exhibition space and light refreshments will be served in the café. The building also benefits from a dramatic back drop of the Slateford Aquaduct and Viaduct across the wonderful Water of Leith Walkway.
