Three of us visited for perhaps 1.5 or 2 hours. If you were to race through, I would imagine you could have a cursory look at all rooms within 30 minutes. However, the film (at the start) and, especially, the fascinating details provided by National...More

An interesting insight into life in central Edinburgh over the last two centuries. This was an impressive house and reflects how life would have been in days gone by. There are good panels to read information from and each room had a very helpful volunteer...More

We did this in conjunction with 'the Real Mary King Close' tour. It is a lovely house in a lovely part of the city and was a real contrast to how the people lived in the old city during the same period.

Extremely helpful & well informed staff. Atmosphere & attention to detail quite extraordinary - The Georgian House is one of the best National Trust town houses in Scotland & the UK well worth a visit when staying in Edinburgh.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest

crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
