Top ways to experience Lawnmarket Old Time Photos and similar attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Great fun preserving a beard for posterity!
Feb 2020
My friend was sad because his long beard was going to be cut short. So, as a gift, I took him to Lawnmarket Old Time Photos. His bushy beard was the star of the show in his guise as a wild Jacobean Highlander. Wielding sword and shield my friend created lots of exciting memories to take away and share with family. Settling into civilian life neatly trimmed will not be so dull. Our Spanish photographer was friendly and efficient, so we were very satisfied with the resulting photos.

I wish I could rate reviews because I couldn't feel myself more proud for the preservation of such an important beard. Hopefully, it will grow again to his taste and we can make another session, this time up and down the royal mile (I'll ask the council about handling swords in public). Thanks a lot for coming, I had a great time with you ;)

Most enjoyable experience captured expertly by Angelo from Lawnmarket
Dec 2019
We were wandering around the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, when we spotted a shop with gifts. While we were browsing some of the wares in the shop, we saw a wall full of photos with people dressed in traditional Scottish Tartan dresses. We were all excited and booked for a session for the whole group (9 of our family members).

We went to the studio at the back of the shop. Angelo at the counter was very friendly and advised us on the best package to buy. Then he helped us find the right dresses for everyone from 6 year old girl to a 75 year old grand dad.

We then started to enjoy the experience of using different props and posing for different photos in different groups. The experience of posing in funny poses and serious group photos was most enjoyable. Angelo patiently captured all our fun and frolic in his camera, along with the more serious photos.

Angelo then took a very short time to edit the photos to create a portfolio of over 50 photos. At the end, we went through over 50 photos to choose 4 that we printed. Rest of them were loaded into an USB and given to us.

While we spent nearly 2 hours dressing up, posing, dressing down and choosing photos, the experience itself was well worth it. And we would like to really compliment Angelo for bearing with us and delivering an excellent outcome in the photos.

I would strongly recommend everyone to try this. It is well worth it.

We entered just to ask, but seeing the amount of dare they had and how well they had everything mounted we could not resist hiring the photo shoot.
The photographer, a great professional, helped us get into the role we played and the truth was that we had a great time and the result of the photos was impeccable.

Thank you very much to the Boy from Cáceres (Spain)

We randomly decided to get our photographs done after seeing an advert in a shop and we are so glad we did! It was amazing and so much fun!
Isma (our photographer) was brilliant, he made the experience fun and very memorable. He was patient, helpful and had some great ideas to get the best shots!

Would 100% recommend this experience!

Thank you Isma :) xx

A tourist attraction to make memories
Aug 2019
In this place, you are provided typical clothing and accessories to be donned for the "historical" photos. It is a fun way to spend an hour or so, with lasting memories of your visit to Scotland. Best done in small groups. Pick your pose, the background and the outfits. Healthy fun.

such fun
Sep 2019
this was a last minute, silly - this would be fun thing to do - stop for us. AND what a special experience. The staff was very helpful and patience. There were 5 of us all 65+ acting like little kids. Our pictures are truly special keepsakes from our trip. You should try it if you get a chance. Extra bonus, Wardrop's Close is beautiful
