Jupiter Artland
Bonnington House Steadings
Edinburgh EH27 8BY

A five-star visitor attraction founded by philanthropist art collectors Nicky and Robert Wilson in 2009.

Jupiter Artland is home to five galleries and an expansive outdoor sculpture collection featuring 35 permanent site-specific commissioned artworks from some of the world's most significant artists including Antony Gormley, Charles Jencks, Anish Kapoor and Phyllida Barlow.

All set within the 100 acre grounds of Bonnington House, a 17th century Jacobean Manor House, visitors are encouraged to freely explore the Artland and discover the artworks at their own pace.

The foundation has a ‘Pay What You Want Tuesdays’ for the months of May, June and September. Visitors are encouraged to pay what they wish upon entry and all donations help support Jupiter’s charitable work and aim of engaging with every school child in Scotland.

In 2019, visitors will be able to enjoy a seasonal menu in Café Party thanks to a partnership with modern Scottish restaurant, Fhior. Headed up by Scott and Laura Smith, Fhior.

Originally opened in 2017, Café Party is a permanent commission by Swiss artist and Glasgow School of Art graduate, Nicolas Party and offers visitors a fantastical and unique experience when dining at Jupiter which includes specially designed crockery, furniture and large vivid wall paintings all heavily influenced by Parisian bistros.

During August, there is a free bus to Jupiter Artland.
