Perched above the sandstone-clad landmark Museum of Scotland, spectacular views of Edinburgh's Castle and city skyline feature on the menu of James Thomson's stunning rooftop restaurant. Sleek and stylish, the Tower is designed to impress and has become a must-see for A-list celebrities and visitors to Scotland, as well as its loyal local clientèle.
Located on the roof of Scotland's finest 20th-century building, the Tower takes its name from the striking stone entrance tower of the National Museum of Scotland. With the best views in the city together with superlative food, an award-winning wine list and exemplary service ensure Edinburgh's first and finest rooftop restaurant has rapidly established itself as a major destination for visitors and locals alike. Kate Winslet, Joanna Lumley, the Countess of Wessex, AA Gill, Ricky Gervais, J K Rowling, Catherine Zeta Jones, Sean Connery and Helena Bonham-Carter are among many for whom the Tower is a must!
Afternoon tea at the Tower is available daily from 2.30pm to 5.30pm. In summer it is a magical experience on the Tower's rooftop terrace with its spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle and the historic Old Town below.
