Presentation seats

Donate a presentation seat

You can donate a black metal, galvanised seat in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a visit you have enjoyed to Edinburgh. Seats can be sited in most of our parks, walkways and on some city streets. The seat costs £1,965 which includes 

  • the plaque
  • the inscription
  • installation
  • maintenance for 20 years.

If a seat is damaged beyond repair during the 20 years, the cost of a replacement is the donor's responsibility.

Contact us for more information.

You will be donating the seat for use by everyone who lives in or visits Edinburgh. Seats remain the property of the City of Edinburgh Council. We don't permit additions like

  • floral displays
  • pictures
  • keepsakes.
