Lauriston Castle has a rich and interesting history covering more than seven centuries. Come and meet the spirits of some of the people who have lived in the castle over these years. What was life like in the castle in their day and what do they make of the changes to the building? This is a light-hearted and amusing event inspired by the popular BBC programme “Ghosts”.

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 soupçon 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.
