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.

Interesting place. Peaceful as went during term time so not sure what it would be like in peak times. Would have liked a bit more info on self tour but as I declined the audio (I am deaf) that was maybe my own fault

The kids were a bit young to appreciate this building but the dressing up was a great hit.

I bought a family ticket and went in 15 minutes before my three children, just to get a head start in case they were not as interested. Although it only took about 40 minutes and for the children 20, it was still well worth going to. We loved looking from the windows into the Royal Mile, imagining if we lived there! Really interesting but not too much for children.

Very straight forward to use our voucher. Small house but an interesting visit. The top floor room was particularly amazing.
