Lauriston Castle will re-open its doors to the public on Saturday 25 June with a weekend of activity for families.
Visitors will once again be able to step inside the 400 year old building and visit its collections.
In addition to the regular Edwardian themed tour, the team will host a brand-new fun family castle tour for the opening weekend where visitors can learn all about its history. There may be some special things for you to find and secret things to see in the Castle.
Costumed volunteers from Edinburgh Living History will be on hand to entertain visitors with stories from past-times and, in the gardens, there will be FREE family art and storytelling activities with some special garden trails. Garden volunteers will be on hand with a plant sale and will be able to show visitors all the new work achieved in the gardens.
See you here on Saturday 25 June and Sunday 26 June.
