In this Victorian rooftop chamber very near the entrance to Edinburgh Castle you can see live moving images of Edinburgh projected onto a viewing table through a giant periscope.

There are also rooftop views of the city and surrounding area through telescopes. The World of Illusions offers hands on exhibits to do with light and illusions.
