What you can expect

Visit: Camera Obscura and World of Illusions, Castlehill, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh EH1 2ND Scotland

World of Illusions:

As you weave your way through our World of Illusions, remember one important rule: nothing here is what it seems.

Venture into five floors full of things you’ve probably never seen before. A swirling light vortex that can sweep you off your feet. A maze made of mirrors. A chance to swap noses with a friend. It’s all here.

Camera Obscura show:

At this time we have taken the decision to postpone all demonstrations of the Camera Obscura. We’re working quickly on how to make the Camera Obscura show safe with social distancing in place and a new ventilation system.
