Brass Rubbing Centre

Trinity Apse, Chalmers Close, Royal Mile

The Brass Rubbing Centre occupies Trinity Apse, the only surviving fragment of the Gothic Trinity College Church, founded about 1460 by Queen Mary of Gueldres, wife of James II of Scotland.

In the centre, you will find a fascinating collection of replicas moulded from ancient Pictish stones, rare Scottish brasses and medieval church brasses.

No experience is required to make a rubbing, and staff are on hand to help. The Centre also stocks high quality ready-made rubbings, brass rubbing kits, booklets, postcards and gifts. Look out for details of special events.
