Police Information Centre review Rate it

Staffed by friendly coppers (indeed, it's a working police office), this small room has information on almost every aspect of policing in Edinburgh both past and present. Historic exhibits include a macabre business-card holder made from the cured skin of grave-robber William Burke, vicious weapons and some rather splendid truncheons.
