Dr Arnott’s Sampling Sensation

New Interactive & Immersive Experience at The Real Mary King’s Close

This December, uncover the secrets of 17th-century medicine with a hands-on workshop led by an expert from his time: Dr Arnott. His speciality was internal medicine, and his favourite method to examine his patients’ health was to analyse urine’s colour, smell, and… TASTE!

Join our Sampling Sensation experience and become one of Dr Arnott’s students. ALL your senses will be required as you examine patients’ samples (following Dr Arnott’s method) and create your own herbal cure.
