Do you have to book to visit Craigtoun?

No.  Craigtoun is a public park and open 24/7.  We have no means of controlling the number of people entering the park and therefore there is no need nor facility to book in advance to visit.

No. Entrance is free and there are many free facilities to enjoy.  You only pay if you want to use our seasonal attractions which run from Easter to October.

Can you book / pay for tickets in advance?

Individual tickets and day bands can only be bought from the Ticket Office on the day of your visit. Annual Passes can, however, be purchased on-line.

Can you have a barbecue in the park?

Yes.  There are dedicated BBQ stands located in the picnic area close to the Adventure Playground.  You can set up a BBQ elsewhere but we ask you please to be respectful of other visitors, not to place it directly on the grass and to dispose of it responsibly afterwards – beside a bin, not inside one!

Yes, but please be mindful of pedestrians, dogs, trains and tractors!  We have a rack for you to secure your bike, which is located close to the Ticket Office.
