Gladstone's Land hotels
Though a magnificent example of seventeenth century luxury living, Gladstone’s Land in Old Town Edinburgh reveals the reality of all aspects of living in Edinburgh tenement housing for every social class. The rooms of Gladstone’s Land help illustrate tales of public punishments for crimes, secret hiding places for money and important documents, rooms and etiquette for entertaining guests, and crowded family living with authentic furniture and artefacts. Interested visitors can even rent a flat within the building. This historic gem, now a nationally run tourist landmark, was supposed to be demolished but was saved by the National Trust for Scotland.
- Sign the kids up to follow the Gladstone’s Land’s Discovery Trail, where children scavenge for answers to trivia questions, hear stories from period-dressed tour guides, and follow the Wee Guide to see what life was like for kids in Edinburgh in the 1600s.
- Browse the onsite art gallery and gift shop to see revolving displays of local artist’s works and purchase Edinburgh-related souvenirs.
- Attend one of Gladstone’s Land’s special events, which include art and history-related workshops and demonstrations.
