Overview

Visit the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and take a behind-the-scenes tour, in an event which offers the rare opportunity to discover the architecture and stories behind 300 years of College history.

The College’s buildings boast elaborate ceilings, beautiful fireplaces, stunning architecture and contemporary artwork. The grand staircase, Great Hall, busts of illustrious figures from the history of medicine and portraits can all be found in the purpose-built nineteenth-century College building.

The oldest building on site, one of the earliest built in Edinburgh’s New Town, was designed in the eighteenth century by Robert Adam and Robert Ord, Chief Baron of the Scottish Court of the Exchequer and it sits comfortably alongside the College’s more modern, twentieth- and twenty-first-century additions.

The College Doors Open Day will take place from 11am to 4pm, with last entrance at 3.30pm. There is no need to book, please just turn up.
