St Hilda's welcomes visitors both to services and on Saturdays and Sundays from 2
to 4 pm and also on Wednesdays from 11.30 am to 1.00 pm. As well as splendid architecture
and a warm welcome, the church offers a Visitor Centre with modern display panels

Groups are welcome to contact us to arrange for a visit at any convenient time; guided
tours and more substantial refreshments are available on request.
The other main visitor attraction on the Headland is the Heugh Battery, which is
only a few minutes’ walk away and can easily be visited on the same day.
