To celebrate National Photography Day Mrs Margaret Reid the last owner of Lauriston Castle was a keen photographer and a member of the Edinburgh Photographic Society. Photographs from this period remain in the Lauriston Castle archive. Our costumed performers will reconstruct some scenes of Edwardian life from these beautiful period photographs. Be transported back to a different period. Book on link or ring 0131 336 2060. 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 soupcon 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.
