Free Tours



Each Saturday the Collective runs guided tours led by a staff team member featuring the history of the Calton Hill over the past 200 years. The tour covers the architecture and astronomical instruments on site including the new buildings constructed in 2017-18. Tours are free (donations welcome) and are not bookable in advance – places are allocated on a first come, first served basis on the day. The tour begins from just outside the entrance to the City Observatory building and lasts approximately 45 minutes. The Calton Hill is an exposed location so please dress for the weather (in severe weather tours may be cancelled).
