Norway Constitution Day

Norway Constitution Day

The strong ties between Orkney and Norway are celebrated every year with a parade and a service in the cathedral.

At one time, Orkney actually belonged to Norway and many of the place names and the old Orkney language are from Old Norse. There is a Centre for Nordic Studies in Kirkwall and Norway always sends a tree to the city  at Christmas.

Many Norwegians visit Orkney to help mark Norway’s Constitution Day. As in previous years,¬† we are hosting a number of them at Highland Park House.

This morning, they started the day in style with a champagne breakfast.
