A landmark destination in Riyadh for many reasons, Diriyah is the perfect place to be if you’re looking for that mesh between the past, present, and future. It’s been quite the hub for dining too, thanks to Bujairi Terrace, and now you can get into the area for free. Yes, you read that right. You can now get free entry to Diriyah.

Starting this week and going on until Saturday September 30, access to At-Turaif and luxury fine-dining destination Bujairi Terrace is completely free and you don’t need a pass to enter the area anymore.

For At-Turaif, entry is subject to availability, and for Bujairi Terrace, it’s highly recommended to have a reservation set up ahead of visiting.

When there, you can explore the incredibly restored ruins of the prominent citadel of Salwa Palace — the original home of the Al-Saud royal family — in the historic At-Turaif district, before crossing the bridge and making your way down the restaurant of your choice at Bujairi Terrace.

Bujairi Terrace consists of 20 local and international restaurants. From famed institutions to long-standing favourites, what distinguishes the hotspot from other high-end dining destinations is the balanced offering of Saudi cuisine alongside top-notch international Michelin-star brands.

If you’ve always wanted to visit Diriyah (who doesn’t), now’s definitely the time to make plans and dive into a bit of history, a lot of food, and a ton of fun.

We’ll see you there.

Free access to Diriyah, At-Turaif and Bujairi Terrace, daily 5pm to midnight (At-Turaif), Sat to Wed 10am to midnight (Bujairi Terrace), Thu-Sat 10am to 1am. Until Sat Sep 30. @visitdiriyah
