Join the cast of Edinburgh Living History as they bring the castle to life during two costumed tours. 

It is December 1907, and the residents and staff of Lauriston Castle are preparing for the festive season. There will be a tree, decorations, gifts and perhaps some singing. Mr and Mrs Reid are renowned for their love of entertaining and this year will be no exception. How do the downstairs staff react to this increase in their workload or are they simply looking forward to the prospect of the Hogmanay dance in the nearby church hall?


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. Why not make a day of it at Lauriston and have some lunch at Mimi’s café on site.
