It’s the year 1905 and The Reids of Lauriston Castle, at the forefront of modern technology, have invited some guests to Lauriston in order to showcase these latest innovations: electricity, central heating, plumbing, the telephone. While most of the staff welcome these improvements, some are uncertain about how to deal with them. 

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. 


Adult £10, Concession and children £6 (under 5 free), includes tea and cake.
