In the 19th century, Stirling was home to the most terrible prison in all of Britain . It was a damp and unpleasant place, full of prisoners, including men, women and children. They ranged from petty criminals to adults, ranging from murderers to people awaiting trial and debtors.

A local guide will accompany you through the streets of this beautiful city, where you will discover King Street, the medieval wall , Mercat Cross, the Old Gaol, the Tollgate, the John Cowane Hospital, the Old Cemetery, Pyramid Star and the Church of Holy Rude, among other places.

Jesús relata de forma entretenida y entusiasta la historia de Escocia, haciendo muy ameno el tour y fácil de entender en rasgos generales la historia de la ciudad. Además nos dio varias recomendaciones para visitar tras el tour, así como sitios para comer. Lo recomiendo 100%.

Experiencia muy recomendada. Nosotros cogimos free tour por Stirling y luego entradas por nuestra cuenta con explorer pass. Edu nos dejó unirnos al grupo de stirling + castillo, aunq tuviéramos nuestras propias entradas. Sin el la visita hubiera sido diferente.
