Camera Obscura & World of Illusions allows visitors to enjoy an original camera obscura that produces moving images of the city, more than 100 mind-bending optical illusions and the awe-inspiring Rooftop Terrace that offers a panoramic view of Edinburgh. The attraction spans 5 storeys, but there is no lift available, so the space is not wheelchair accessible.

This is an entertaining and fun place for families and couples alike, and there are fun opportunities for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
