I popped along to Freemasons Hall , really on the off chance I could join a tour. Imagine my surprise when the lovely lady at reception arranged for me to have a one person tour just for me !
The whole tour was absolutely fascinating...More
Masonic history throughout and artifacts on display all have stories worth knowing. Be sure your guide tells you about both chairs under the portrait of George Washington. Most impressive to me were 1) the freedom given to Lodges in Scotland and 2) the document on...More
Thank you so much to the grand lodge of Scotland secretary for stepping in and showing us around. As a freemason in London and Kent it's always great to see the history of the institution. It was absolutely fascinating and I cannot wait to visit...More

It's great to see the inside of Freemasons Hall and try it out as a Fringe venue (The Narcos hunting Escobar event was great). However the venue isn't great for seating or bars. It has a cramped feel to the seats - narrow rows and...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
