How does it work?

The Edinburgh City Pass saves you money and is easy to use. Available as a plastic card, pdf format to print out at home or as a mobile friendly pass you purchase your Edinburgh City Pass online or at the VisitScotland information centre when you get here. Each pass is valid for either one, two or three consecutive calendar days and is simply scanned at each attraction to gain entry. If you purchase the mobile version of the pass we will send you an electronic version of the visitor guide.

Passes are activated upon entry at the first attraction of your visit. We always advise customers to start using their pass first thing in the morning as from then on it works on a calendar day basis, not 24 hour period. The Edinburgh City Pass is not a fast track pass and passes can only be used once at each experience.
