View VideoThe Camera Obscura show is a fascinating and highly amusing way to see the city and learn about its history. This unique experience has delighted and intrigued people for over 150 years. It is a 'must' on any visit to Edinburgh.

From inside this mysterious Victorian rooftop chamber, you see live moving images of Edinburgh projected onto a viewing table through a giant periscope. Pick people up on your hands, squash them to a pulp and even make the traffic climb over paper bridges.

Our friendly guide will entertain you while telling stories of Edinburgh, past and present, in an engaging and informative way. Our visitors are truly amazed at how, in this age of high technology, a simple array of mirror, lenses and daylight can produce this incredible panorama.

Experiencing the Camera Obscura is like stepping back in time!

When I last visited I was a child and was enchanted by the views via the Camera Obscura. That quality and sense of wonderment are still there

The guide in the Camera Obscura show was a riot! His humour was exceptional and it was obvious he enjoyed his job. I really appreciated his enthusiasm.

We had a mini guided tour in the Camera Obscura - this really made the visit! Picking people and cars up was a real laugh. I left feeling that I knew the city and locality a whole lot better.

Seeing the city in bird's eye perspective was amazing and the rest of the exhibition was one big playground. I wish I'd had more time and will definitely come back!

The staff at the camera obscura were all friendly and smiling and helped to make this visit a very positive experience for our family group which met up in Edinburgh for a few days. Thank you!
