From Our Editors

A medieval building dating back to 1470, John Knox House is Edinburgh's only surviving structure of its type. Equipped with an audio guide, visitors can explore the house associated with The Scottish Reformation, which led to civil war and the abdication of Mary, Queen of Scots. Guests will hear about the house's famous inhabitants including John Knox, a clergyman and writer, and James Mosman – jeweller and goldsmith to Mary, Queen of Scots – as well as the intruder-deterring tricks and traps, and The Oak Room's veiled devil.

Easy to find location on the High Steet. Interesting history about John Knox and the Scottish Reformation.

Very interesting place to see and great value especially if visited using Groupon deal. Quite a few stairs so just bear this in mind if travelling with someone who cannot get up and down that well.

The visit was very informative. You get a sheet telling you all about the history.

Even though we visited during the Edinburgh Festival it was very quiet and we practically had the place to ourselves, giving plenty of time to read all the information and immerse ourselves in the experience.
