Welcome to the Old Edinburgh Club

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

For one hundred years we have encouraged interest in Edinburgh’s history through lectures and visits. We also publish The Book of the Old Edinburgh Club, which is renowned as a source of well-authenticated information on all aspects of Edinburgh history.

We hope our website will help you to explore the fascinating past of Scotland’s capital. Go to the Membership page to learn how to join us in exploring Edinburgh through history. If you have a question about Edinburgh’s history, go to our Resources page for useful websites and books.

This session the Club will meet montly from November 2020 to April 2021, on Wednesday evenings, either via webinar or at the Augustine United Church on George IV Bridge if Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
