The Gothic Rocket

Monday 4 October 2021


The Scott Monument is the Victorian Gothic monument dedicated to writer Sir Walter Scott. From alternative designs to pioneering photographs of the monument under construction and even the odd souvenir, we’ll examine the archives to see how this iconic land mark has endured on Princes Street, Edinburgh since its completion in 1846.

This talk is free but booking in advance is essential.
