ABOUT US

We connect people to their heritage.

Edinburgh World Heritage is an independent charity that aims to ensure the city’s World Heritage status benefits everyone. We want to connect people to their heritage in everything we do – through the conservation of historic buildings, delivering improvements to public places, or engaging people directly through education.
