Public invited to Faculty on Doors Open Day

19 Sep


HUNDREDS of people are expected to take the chance of a rare glimpse inside the Faculty when the Advocates Library features in Edinburgh Doors Open Day 2017 on Saturday (23 September).

Library staff will conduct timed tours for small groups, taking in the splendour of the Playfair corridor, named after the Library’s designer, William Henry Playfair, as well as the law room which was once a court and venue of the Burke and Hare case.

Parliament House will be open from 10am to 4pm, and the tours of the Library run from 10:15am to 3:30pm. They have proved very popular in past years and places are limited, so visitors are advised to come early and book a place on a tour as they arrive in Parliament House.

The full programme of the Edinburgh and East Lothian Doors Open Day is at
