About the Tour

The stories of Edinburgh are almost too amazing to be true, but as you join this entertaining walking tour with an expert local guide, you will discover tales that you simply couldn't make up. Hear the stories of the English kings and how the Edinburgh locals showed what they thought of them, discover the real-life Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde, and learn why leaving the pub at closing time in old Edinburgh was a particularly dangerous undertaking. These local tour guides bring Edinburgh's history to life as they take you to major landmarks in Edinburgh's Old Town like St Gile's Cathedral, the Scottish Writer's Museum, and the Grassmarket, where public executions didn't always go according to plan.

Of course though, Edinburgh's fascinating history is not just made up of madmen. Discover heroic men and women like William Wallace and the Stone of Destiny, learn about Scottish literary greats at the Scottish Writers' Museum (we promise you can name more of them than you think!), and even discover a sweet local dog who redefined the word loyalty at Greyfriars Kirkyard.

Highlights:

  • Stroll up the Royal Mile, visiting St Gile’s Cathedral and other major landmarks
  • Meet Scottish greats like William Wallace
  • Visit the pub (and history!) filled Grassmarket
  • Help to contribute to the local community at your coffee break at the Grassmarket Project
  • See the National Museum of Scotland

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: We will be at 130 High Street (The Royal Mile), on the corner with Stevenlaw's Close
