Relive domestic life of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries at this riverside Royal Burgh, where the old buildings and cobbled streets create a fascinating time warp for visitors. Close your eyes and you can almost hear the calls of medieval street vendors selling their wares and the clang of hammers on metal as the Hammermen of Culross fashioned the famous girdles. Explore the beautiful refurbished Palace, which dates from 1597, and imagine what it would have been like to live within the splendid interiors, which feature painted woodwork and seventeenth and eighteenth-century furniture. Take a wander around the reconstructed early seventeenth-century palace garden, where we grow a selection of period vegetables and fruit, as well as herbs and other plants that might have been used in the Palace at the time.
