Welcome to the Old Edinburgh Club

The Club is Edinburgh's local history society, concerned with all aspects of the city's history and development.

For one hundred years we have encouraged interest in Edinburgh's history through lectures and visits. We also publish The Book of the Old Edinburgh Club, which is renowned as a source of well-authenticated information on all aspects of Edinburgh history.

We hope our website will help you to explore the fascinating past of Scotland's capital. Go to the Membership page to learn how to join us in exploring Edinburgh through history. If you have a question about Edinburgh's history, go to our Resources page for useful websites and books.

Summer 2017 Visits

The Club's visits for Summer 2017 have now been finalised and members have been sent details.

As before due to over-subscription in the past, the Council has again decided that places on these outings should be offered to Old Edinburgh Club members only. (If you have a friend who learns of our programme of outings and really wants to come, then you should persuade them to join the Club!)

Update - extra visit

We have been lucky enough to have been offered a chance of an extra Visit this summer. This will be to St Cecilia's Hall on Thursday 15 June. [ More details … ].
