The Georgian House After Dark

About The Georgian House After Dark

Explore 7 Charlotte Square by candlelight after hours, just as the original residents and servants would have 230 years ago. Learn of the society events and family activities which were an everyday part of the family's lives after dark.

Discover the dark history of the house and Edinburgh in the 18th and early 19th century.

This is a free flow experience, so please arrive anytime between 6:30pm and 7:45pm.
