Gladstone's Land

Museums

Gladstone's Land offers an insight into life amongst the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh's Old Town in the 17th century, so if your looking for a comparison between old and new, you should visit the house - now one of Edinburgh's few surviving six-storey 17th-century tenement buildings.

A map of 17th-century Edinburgh hanging on the wall of the Hall (many years before the New Town was conceived) shows the stark difference between the hugely overpopulated Royal Mile of Edinburgh and the more residential Canongate, where wealthier people lived in larger houses with private gardens.

The house is still furnished with period furniture and artefacts, so be prepared to be transported all the way back in time. Facilities include a shop and The Gladstone Gallery, which features changing exhibitions of celebrated local artists.
