Какво ще правите

We look forward to welcoming you into the Stevenson House, the historic childhood home of Robert Louis Stevenson, author of "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde," "Treasure Island," and other famous works. You will have an unique chance to see behind the facade of an historic building in Edinburgh's New Town, which is also a living family home and the place where Scotland's most-read author grew up. Hear what it was like for him as he struggled to become a writer, exploring Edinburgh's heights and depths, and learn about the life of today for the family that lives here. At the end, you'll be treated to home-baked cakes and tea or coffee in the formal dining room, and you'll learn more about life in Stevenson's day and now.

Please be aware that, being a nineteenth-century family home, the house is not wheelchair friendly. To access the house you will need to climb seven steps from the street. Fully to enjoy the experience you will need to be able to climb, and descend, a flight of about twenty-four steps in your own time.
Other things to note
Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs and if you are intolerant of gluten, nuts, or dairy products. There are steps! 7 to the front door and 24 up to the drawingroom where we will enjoy part of our experience.

My family has lived in the Stevenson House since 1992, and it has been my husband's family home since 1971. With our children, we love to welcome guests to this historic home and to share our knowledge and experience of the house and its most famous inhabitant, the author Robert Louis Stevenson. I'm a graduate of the École Hôtelière de Lausanne, and I have three decades of experience in hospitality. My husband John is a lawyer by training, but by calling he is a guide for explorers in Edinburgh.

Къде ще бъдете

The Stevenson House is at 17 Heriot Row in Edinburgh—and in the imagination on Treasure Island, in the streets of Edinburgh and London in the 1800s, and in Samoa in the South Pacific.

My son and I had so much fun learning about the life and times of Robert Louis Stevenson. The house is absolutely stunning and John was so knowledgeable about everything RLS and also about many many other authors. Such a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

I really enjoyed this experience. I didn’t know much about Robert Louis Stevenson before and now, I’m looking forward to read his stories. The house is just beautiful and the afternoon tea was delicious.

When we arrived we were greeted by John who was incredibly friendly and welcoming into his home. We were awestruck by the décor of the rooms and each detail was accompanied by it's interesting history when we asked. Admittedly, neither myself or my girlfriend knew very much about Robert Louis Stevenson or his works but we were keen to learn and our chats with John gave us just that. The first hour was spend listening to John about Stevenson's life and books then the remaining time was spent having tea over oatcake and apple cake. Safe to say by the time we left we were well informed about Stevenson and many of the interesting history behind Edinburgh. An excellent experience which we recommend you add to your itinerary when visiting Edinburgh. Thank you for having us.

This was a truly brilliant experience. John was extremely knowledgeable about everything related to Stevenson and his insight into the history of the house and Edinburgh in general was fascinating. Besides, he is a brilliant conversation partner, which made us feel all the more welcome in this amazing house! We highly recommend this experience.

Book this experience! As I cannot express enough just how wonderful John and Felicitas are with their guests. John spoke of Robert Louis Stevenson’s life in great detail; his upbringing, his path taken as a writer, and the scandals/themes that inspired his works. I was absolutely enthralled with John’s stories - especially inside Stevenson’s childhood home!Felicitas prepared tea for us, along with fresh sweets and spreads from her garden! I hold this time very near and dear to my heart, as I feel I’ve made friends for life. Thank you to you both!
