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.

Surprising how big the house is and it gives a flavour of what life was like in John Knox time.

This is a cool little self-guided tour that is packed with info. I would say that it would be worth it at full price (for adults; kids would likely be bored). The discount makes it a great way to spend about an hour not far from the castle and the Jolly Judge.

One of the oldest houses in the city, with a fascinating history covering much more than John Knox.
