Down Chalmers Close from the High Street (or pass through the breezeway of the Jury's Hotel from Jeffrey St.) is this lesser-known and calm attraction. The Brass Rubbing Centre is located in the remnants of the Holy Trinity church, founded in the 1460s. Here you can make a wax rubbing (impression) from all sorts of designs, whether prehistoric Pictish motifs or Celtic crosses. Costs start from about £2 ($4) for simple rubbings that might take an hour or less to execute, though the cost is much more for elaborate brass plates that may occupy an entire day.
