Experience a taste of High Society

With the National Trust for Scotland

New and exclusive Living History Tours of the National Trust for Scotland’s 4-Star Georgian House in Edinburgh are now available from Scotland’s leading conservation charity’s Travel Trade department.

Guided by the Lady or Gentleman of the House attired in traditional costume, visitors will experience the life of a wealthy 18th-century merchant’s family. As they are escorted round Edinburgh’s only authentically furnished New Town house, visitors will listen to stories and be mesmerised by the opulence and splendour of their host’s exquisite collections of china, silver, paintings and furniture, before going ‘below stairs’ to experience the contrasting life of the cooks, maids and household staff who made this elegant lifestyle possible.

Dating from 1796 and located in Charlotte Square, in the heart of Edinburgh’s famous World Heritage Site, the Georgian House forms part of Robert Adam’s masterpiece of urban design. Within easy access of Princes Street and the Royal Mile, a visit to the Georgian House is perfect as part of a memorable day out in Scotland’s capital.

These unique and personalised tours are currently available at a special introductory group rate of £70 (including VAT) for groups of up to 10 guests. Tours last approximately 1hour; pre-booking is essential.

For all bookings and enquiries email the National Trust for Scotland at traveltrade@nts.org.uk or telephone 0844 493 2104 (+44 131 243 9304 from outside the UK).
