The Georgian House, a grand New Town house in Charlotte Square, was designed by celebrated classical architect Robert Adam in 1790. Three floors have been authentically restored and furnished to reflect the luxurious lifestyle of the first owners, the Lamont family, who moved in in 1796.

On Sunday 26th September you are invited to discover some of the hidden gems here at The Georgian House as our volunteer guides talk about some of their favourite objects and how they illustrate life in Edinburgh’s New Town (further details below).

To celebrate the life of Sir Walter Scott for the 250th anniversary of his birth, we will also show a recording of our volunteers dancing The Lady of the Lake in the beautiful Drawing Room!

If you can’t make it along in person this year we hope you will enjoy a short “virtual visit” below to 18th century Georgian Edinburgh.
