The Camera Obscura Royal Mile Edinburgh

Where else can you scoop up oblivious Princes Street pedestrians onto a scrap of paper, throw them about a bit and then let them on their merry way? Camera Obscura is Edinburgh’s fantastically fun world of illusions at the top end of The Royal Mile and in the literal shadow of Edinburgh Castle.

As a family visit and a wonderfully interesting way to spend several hours, Camera Obscura baffles young and old with a host of optical experiences and hands-on, interactive exhibitions.

Playing with light, imagery and magic, prepare to be amazed time and time again as the displays change and additional illusions are added to this tardis-like attraction.

Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff, add to the fun element within Camera Obscura where you are allowed to be a child again, for at least the day!
