Much enjoyed our visit to this authentic medieval building, complete with turnpike stair, wooden beams and original ceiling panels. Great views through old, glass panel, window panes looking up the High Street. Of course there’s lots of information about John Knox and his turbulent political/ religious relationship with Mary Queen O’ Scots and details and timelines of the Scottish Reformation. Good wee cafe and superb storytelling bookshop. You also have access to the Scottish Storytelling Centre in an adjacent building.

Very interesting and informative museum about the situation in Scotland at the time of the Reformation, about the relationship between J.Knox & Mary Queen of Scots, and beautiful 15th / 16th century furniture and interior

About John Knox House

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.
