Day trip to Edinburgh meant new Tram system had to be tried. AMAZING. Better than a bus any day. Took to journeys - One of only one stop as not quite organised, second from York place to "The Haymarket" - done as a tourist but would love to be able to use on a daily basis.
Only slight problem, the day we where there it was raining and shelters at Tram stops not large or long enough to cover everyone waiting, got very wet as trams run every 10 minutes and we arrived just a last one left.

We just happened upon this museum by chance. We were asked if we would like to walk around on our own or have a guided tour. We were so pleased we opted for the latter as were told so many interesting facts which we would never have known. The fire engines and other exhibits, dating from 1806, are beautifully kept and preserved and the building itself is also of great interest. There was no charge, but there is a box for donations. I would certainly recommend visiting this museum.

This special museum is one of Edinburgh’s best kept secrets so it was a real treat to find out what goes on behind the doors of the former fire station in Lauriston Place.

The museum houses a range of fire engines dating from 1806, manual, horse-drawn, steam and motorised pumps, along with many other fire-related items dating back to the 15th Century. The artefacts found in the museum chart the development of firefighting over more than 400 years.

Our group loved every minute of the tour with Alastair - a retired fireman. He brought the exhibits to life with anecdotes and background information that went beyond anything we might have discovered by ourselves.

We were all very, very impressed by every aspect of the Museum and the exhibits - in range and variety. But perhaps the most impressive aspect was the apparent care and obvious pride that has gone into preserving the exhibits in the very best condition.

The Museum is only open for part of the week, so remember and phone first!
