The beauty about a break in East Lothian, is that there is just so much to do here.
The area boasts an abundance of world class visitor attractions. Whether you are on holiday with the kids, enjoying a getaway with friends or are just looking for a relaxing break together, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Marvel at the world’s largest colony of gannets on the Bass Rock from the 5 star Seabird Centre or get up close to nature with a superb boat trip out on the Firth of Forth to the Rock and the iconic Forth Bridges. Enjoy a wonderful day out at East Links Family Park and explore the great outdoors in the John Muir Country Park, enjoy a supersonic experience at the National Museum of Flight and step back in time with a visit to the historic castles of Tantallon, Dirleton and Dunbar.
In an area famous for golf, there are too many courses to name! and for those looking for something a little more energetic, you could try some surfing lessons or visit Foxlake Adventures, Scotland’s first wakeboarding cable tow park. We recommend a day at the races at Musselburgh and don’t miss a visit and a wee dram at Glenkinchie Distillery.

Love it here. Safe for the children and lovely environment.
This is a beautiful park in a beautiful setting. It has a very relaxed atmosphere which encourages those who like to visit because of the many walks, the views, local history, etc.
Wonderful location and lovely experience.
Tantallon caravan park is a lovely place to stay. Although we stay out of season we have a great time. The park is ideally situated especially as there is a Tesco just down the road. The location is ideal for exploring north Berwick and Dunbar. We always have a fabulous time here. Be seeing you later in the year. A big thank you to the staff at Tantallon.
