On a sunny evening in Edinburgh, I had the privilege to be travelling to a magic show at a Scottish Castle. I didn’t know what to expect having never been to Lauriston Castle before.
There are no words for what I experienced, it was truly MAGICAL from start to finish. Even the walk from the car park up to the Castle was breathtaking. The Castle grounds are immaculate and interesting.
On arrival we were given an unexpected talk on the history of Lauriston Castle. It was fascinating and added to the experience. The Castle has quite the tale to tell. We were then split into groups and then the tour began.
We were given three varied Magic shows by John Henry Blackwood, Jody Greig and Ian Kendall. All very unique and I enjoyed each one in a different way. I left each show with a great content feeling, the same you get after a scrumptious meal. The shows are for everyone of all ages. With a spectacular background, shrouded in history.
The staff were so polite and helpful. I toured the grounds after the event too and had a coffee in the little on site cafe. Which has hot and cold drinks and home made nibbles and cakes.
It was a terrific experience that I would gladly repeat again and again. My favourite day out this summer so far. I highly recommend you book your tickets, it runs from Mon 3 July – Thur 6 July and there are two showing times 5.30pm and 7.30pm. The cost of entry is £18 / £16 conc / £12 child and the duration is 75 minutes on the tour and then you are free to wander around the beautiful gardens.
