Camera Obscura and World of Illusions- where seeing is not believing!
Edinburgh's Camera Obscura is one of the city's oldest tourist attractions and amazingly, this unique experience has delighted and intrigued people for over 150 years, remaining today as popular as it ever was. A great visit for children and adults alike, a fun way to view the city and learn about its history.
With so many fun optical illusions and other curiosities on offer... Can you find your way out of the Magical Mirror Maze? Will you manage to stay on your feet in the Vortex Tunnel? There are amazing 3D and live webcams that you can control, also the giant pinhole camera where you can laugh as your friends appear upside-down!
You can even shrink yourself like Alice in Wonderland but be careful, you don't want to lose your head in the incredible Severed Head illusion!
The friendly guides will entertain you while telling stories of Edinburgh, old and new, in an engaging and informative way. The rooftop terrace provides 360 degree panoramic views of the city from it's vantage point high on Castlehill, with telescopes providing unrivalled, breathtaking views of the city and all of it's famous landmarks.
