Join Edinburgh Living History at Edinburgh's very own hidden Edwardian gem.

The Reids and their guests are about to travel to the Continent, leaving the staff to clean the house from top to bottom. Are they up to this task? And why is cook so angry with the gardener?

Edinburgh Living History are our multi award- winning team, who interpret the history of the castle in a variety of entertaining ways in Edwardian Costume - bringing alive the history of the house. Each performance is carefully devised by Edinburgh Living History to be as historically accurate as possible and include a touch of drama and a soupcon of humour. You will walk through the Castle on a special tour watching the performance unfold. 

Pre-booking and advance payment is essential.
