Thursday 13 October, Thursday 20 October, Thursday 27 October, Thursday 3 November.

Riddle's Court is one of the finest surviving merchant's houses on the Royal Mile. Built in the late 16th century, its diverse visitors and residents over the last 400 years include King James VI, Patrick Geddes, Maggie Smith and Stephen Fry. It represents an important architectural and social record of the last 400 years of development in Edinburgh’s Old Town, reflecting the district’s changing prominence within the city.

Entry is by donation to SHBT’s Riddle's Court appeal to restore the building as the Patrick Geddes Centre for Learning and Conservation.
