“This gastro style pub is a great place for food within the cosy restaurant or a quick coffee at their recently opened café. The Sun Inn sits in view of Newbattle Viaduct, a grand piece of historic engineering that carries the Borders Railway line over the River South Esk in Newtongrange. The viaduct was re-opened in 2015 following the railway line being reinstated.”

History Museum
“This is one of the finest surviving examples of a Victorian colliery in Europe. The highly rated visitor attraction is a twice winner of the Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions "Best Visitor Experience" Award. Visitors to the museum will marvel at the sheer size of the place, be astounded by the engineering brilliance behind all the machinery and retrace the footsteps of the thousands of miners that plied their trade within Newtongrange through the many interactive exhibitions. There is also a café which serves fresh food daily and a gift shop with bespoke souvenirs. Knowledgeable and personable guided tours are also available. Audio tour and self-guided options in English, Deutsch and Français.”

General Entertainment
“Defy gravity on over 19,000 square feet of connected, world-class trampolines! Featuring their famous angled wall trampolines, launching decks and a few surprises from the ceiling to test your aerial skills. You can jump to your heart’s content: bounce in their vast open jump field; leap into the first-rate foam pits; play intense trampoline dodgeball; get a gruelling trampoline workout; slam dunk a basketball in the 9.5 foot hoop, leap from the tower; you get the idea!”
