Чем вы займетесь

We look forward to welcoming you into the Stevenson House, the historic childhood home of Robert Louis Stevenson, author of "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde," "Treasure Island," and other famous works. You will have an unique chance to see behind the facade of an historic building in Edinburgh's New Town, which is also a living family home and the place where Scotland's most-read author grew up. Hear what it was like for him as he struggled to become a writer, exploring Edinburgh's heights and depths, and learn about the life of today for the family that lives here. At the end, you'll be treated to home-baked cakes and tea or coffee in the formal dining room, and you'll learn more about life in Stevenson's day and now.

Please be aware that, being a nineteenth-century family home, the house is not wheelchair friendly. To access the house you will need to climb seven steps from the street. Fully to enjoy the experience you will need to be able to climb, and descend, a flight of about twenty-four steps in your own time.
Other things to note
Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs and if you are intolerant of gluten, nuts, or dairy products. There are steps! 7 to the front door and 24 up to the drawingroom where we will enjoy part of our experience.

My family has lived in the Stevenson House since 1992, and it has been my husband's family home since 1971. With our children, we love to welcome guests to this historic home and to share our knowledge and experience of the house and its most famous inhabitant, the author Robert Louis Stevenson. I'm a graduate of the École Hôtelière de Lausanne, and I have three decades of experience in hospitality. My husband John is a lawyer by training, but by calling he is a guide for explorers in Edinburgh.

Где вы побываете

The Stevenson House is at 17 Heriot Row in Edinburgh—and in the imagination on Treasure Island, in the streets of Edinburgh and London in the 1800s, and in Samoa in the South Pacific.

I loved this experience. I don’t want to spoil it for others, but if you like learning, exploring, and meeting with locals, this is the tour for you! Felicitas was absolutely a wonderful host. She told the story of the house and gave a wonderful historical background before inviting us to ask questions and then having us for tea and goodies. I used to have these sort of experiences while at Yale during my undergrad (teas and lectures) and it really brought back a lot of wonderful memories. I highly recommend this tour to all ages! It was fantastic and a highlight of our trip.

A wonderfully relaxed immersive experience in the 19th century home of historical Edinburgh author Robert Lewis Stevenson (RLS). John is a most knowledgeable host generously sharing insights on the author, his life, and written works. Tea and homemade cakes are lovely. A definite highlight of our holiday experience in Edinburgh.

Visited the home of famous Scottish novelist Robert Louis Stevenson (author, „The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde“ and „Treasure Island“) and if it wasn’t the most pleasant of surprises! For over an hour I sat across the present occupant John – a Cambridge man and lawyer with an admirable passion for and extremely thorough knowledge of Stevenson‘s life and works – as he drew the connections which eventually led to the creation of one of literature‘s most enigmatic villains. All this whilst comfortably sat in the very same living room Stevenson grew up in! Ended up feeling a curious mix of awe-inspired and chills. I remember reading an abridged version of Treasure Island back in fourth grade but somehow missed out on Jekyll and Hyde later on in favour of the more mainstream Victorian fares (melodrama, mostly 🥴). I might just pick it up after this knowing what I know now! The experience ended with tea and cake in the Stevenson dining room (inner stylings still very much Victorian) whilst I regaled John with my very own thrilling tales from the past Covid surges (stuff of horrors, really.) Easily the highlight of my trip. Vielen Dank für die wunderbare Erfahrung!

There are no other words than just absolutely sublime to describe this experience. Our host was welcoming and an amazing storyteller. Delicious, home-made treats and amazing tea! We did not feel like we were intruding but were welcomed warmly. Absolutely wholesome!

This was a literature student’s dream! Being in the childhood home of Robert Louis Stevenson felt like magic, and it seemed like all that I had read and loved about Stevenson was coming to life right before me! Tea was absolutely delicious, but more importantly, John’s storytelling really allowed me to enter the world of Stevenson. In fact, I started jotting down ideas for my thesis speaking to him! He was extremely knowledgeable, and this experience was absolutely perfect.

I booked this as a birthday treat and it really was that - a perfect treat! Everyone in the family (12,14,17) enjoyed our time with John and being in his fabulous home. My younger children were so taken with all the interesting items on display and my eldest was very impressed with the wealth of knowledge about RLS and more John shared with us. And the cakes....they were amazing!!! It was a great birthday experience - thank you!
