Presentation seats

Donate a presentation seat

You can donate a seat in memory of a loved one or in celebration of a visit you have enjoyed to Edinburgh. Seats may be located in most Council owned parks, walkways and some city streets.

Contact the Parks and Greenspace service for more information using the details below.

Please note that you will be donating the seat for the use and enjoyment of everyone who lives or visits Edinburgh. Once installed, seats remain the property of the Council. For this reason, we do not permit additions to the seat such as

  • floral displays
  • pictures
  • keepsakes.


There is currently no availability in the following locations, however there is a waiting list, please contact us if you wish to be added to this list.

  • Princes Street Gardens
  • Saughton Gardens
  • The Hermitage of Braid though there are options in front of Hermitage House
  • The Water of Leith Walkway (between Roseburn and Canonmills)
  • Threipmuir Reservoir.

The location that you choose will determine the type of seat. The options are a galvanised all metal seat with a stainless steel plaque, or a hardwood timber seat with an aged bronze plaque.

  • £1,780 for a black metal galvanised seat
  • £3,560 for a hardwood timber seat
