Explore the ruins of St Peter’s Seminary during Doors Open Day 

St Peter's Seminary, NVA

Walk through the abandoned chapel, find yourself in a graffiti artists’ paradise and try to imagine what life might have been like for the young men who lived here during the 1960s. This is a rare opportunity to visit Scotland’s most iconic modernist building in its raw and ruined state.

We’re excited to announce that St Peter’s will be part of the programme for Doors Open Day 2017, with walking tours of the building taking place on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September.

Built as a college to train Catholic priests in the 1960s, the Seminary was only in use for 14 years and has been abandoned for decades. It is celebrated worldwide as a masterpiece of modernist architecture and its decay has only added to its otherworldly charm.

About to be reclaimed by NVA as an arts venue and visitor attraction, this is your chance to visit St Peter’s before construction begins. The tours are free and advance booking is essential. Tickets will be released on Tuesday 29 August at 10.30am.
