One of 85 police boxes, the Leith Walk Police box was designed by City Architect, Ebenezer Macrae. Originally at the junction of Leith Walk and Albert Street in 1933, it was used by City of Edinburgh Police with the Leith Burgh Force. In 1979, the box was moved by Lothian and Borders Police.

This is an opportunity to see inside a police box and to meet a retired police officer who can tell you about life as a bobby working out of the police boxes. Leith walk police box is now a pop up venue used as temporary spaces for different purposes including art, entrepreneurship, charity and campaigning. The outside has been turned into a public art gallery but the inside remains exactly as it was.

Booking essential via www.leithwalkpolicebox.com
