Step into the shoes of the legendary detective himself and embark on a thrilling half-day adventure in the heart of Edinburgh with our "Become Sherlock Holmes for a Day" immersive experience.
From the moment you meet your costumed storyteller guide, you'll be transported back in time to the Victorian era, immersing yourself in the enigmatic world of Sherlock Holmes.
During this captivating journey, you'll follow in the footsteps of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, exploring the very places that inspired the creation of the iconic detective. From the eerie Greyfriars Cemetery, where medical students once conducted clandestine body-snatching operations, to the prestigious Royal Infirmary, where Doyle honed his medical skills, you'll uncover the intriguing historical backdrop that fuelled the imagination of the master storyteller.
After your exploration, you'll indulge in a unique scientific lunch experience. You'll enjoy a delectable main dish paired with a molecular cocktail or mocktail, allowing you to playfully experiment with foaming and bubbling concoctions, just like Sherlock Holmes would in his own investigations.
"Become Sherlock Holmes for a Day" is your ticket to unraveling the mysteries, intrigue, and culinary wonders of Arthur Conan Doyle's Edinburgh while becoming a part of this timeless tale yourself.
Don your deerstalker and get ready for an unforgettable adventure that blends history, science, and the spirit of the world's greatest detective.
