ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Architecture Walking Tour of Edinburgh Dean Village

Explore Edinburgh's Dean Village during this unique two hour walking tour, visiting St Bernard’s Well, Old Baxter’s Tolbooth, Dean Bridge & more!

Explore the architectural gems of Edinburgh’s Dean Village during this unique two-hour walking tour. Led by an expert guide, it’s a fascinating lesson in Scottish history and culture, as told by some of the area’s most eye-catching buildings and structures.  

Tours begin in Stockbridge Market, where you’ll be met by your guide. As an architect or architecture student, they’re passionate about the built environment, and you’ll benefit from their knowledge and enthusiasm throughout the tour. Over the course of two hours, you’ll make your way through the lush valley of Edinburgh’s Dean Village, pausing at several points of architectural interest. Highlights include a neoclassical water temple, the magnificent Dean Bridge, Victorian social housing at Well Court, and the orphanage-turned-modern-art-gallery Modern Two. Along the way, you’ll discover how the village grew from a successful grain milling area and learn what movements and ideas shaped the local architecture. By the time the tour concludes, you’ll never look at these streets the same way again!

The Architecture Walking Tour of Edinburgh Dean Village is a must-do activity for urban explorers, students and architecture buffs. If you know someone who’s fascinated by buildings, why not treat them to an Experience Days voucher today!
