Welcome to the Old Edinburgh Club

The Club is Edinburghs local history society, concerned with all aspects of the citys history and development.

For one hundred years we have encouraged interest in Edinburghs 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.

Most of our website is currently offline for maintenance. We hope to have it back in a day or two.

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.

The next webinar will be on Wednesday 16th December 2020 and will be by members of the Club on "Reminiscences: Photographs as Reminders of Edinburgh History".
