About the Club

Calton Hill

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

For more than one hundred years, we have encouraged interest in Edinburgh’s history through lectures and visits. We publish The Book of the Old Edinburgh Club, an authoritative source for residents, researchers and, indeed, anyone who shares our delight in the city’s rich heritage.

New members are always welcome to join the Club.

The Council steers and organises the activities of the Club, which is a registered charity with a constitution. Reports of Annual General Meetings, as well as Annual Reports, are also available.

The Club operates under the framework provided by the Data Protection Act 2018 and the UK General Data Protection Regulation. Our full Privacy Policy is available.
