ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Half Day Edinburgh New Town Tour With Lunch Stop

Explore picturesque New Town in Edinburgh and treat yourself to lunch in a former bank!

Explore the architectural gems of Edinburgh’s New Town during this unique half day walking tour with a lunch stop. Led by an expert guide, it’s a fascinating lesson in Georgian history and the Scottish Enlightenment, as told by some of the period’s most iconic buildings.

Tours begin outside Rabbie’s Café, a few minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Waverley railway station, 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 4-5 hours, you’ll make your way through the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town—the world’s largest Georgian planned town development—visiting several points of architectural interest before treating yourself to lunch in a former Victorian bank. Highlights include the exquisite domed extension to Dundas House, the neoclassical tenements of George Street, the private Queen Street Gardens, Robert Adams’ palatial facades in Charlotte Square, and Greek Revival in Moray Estate. Along the way, you’ll discover how the area’s masterplan grew from the Scottish Enlightenment spirit and learn what historical influences shaped the detailing and finishes. By the time the tour concludes, you’ll never look at these streets the same way again!

The Half Day Edinburgh New Town Tour 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!
