ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Half Day Edinburgh Old Town Tour With Lunch Stop

Explore picturesque Old Town in Edinburgh and treat yourself to lunch in the Signet Library!

Explore the architectural gems of Edinburgh’s Old Town during this unique half day walking tour with a stop for lunch. Led by an expert guide, it’s a fascinating lesson in Scottish history and identity, as told by some of the capital’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 Old Town, visiting several points of architectural interest before treating yourself to lunch at the Signet Library. Highlights include the Royal Mile’s crowded tenements, the hidden castles and gargoyles of Cockburn Street, St. Giles Cathedral, Victoria Terrace, the National Museum of Scotland, and the Scottish Parliament Building—plus secret courtyards and gardens that even locals don’t know about! Along the way, you’ll discover how a city grew from this rocky volcanic landscape and learn what historical and contemporary influences shaped the iconic skyline. By the time the tour concludes, you’ll never look at these streets the same way again!

The Half Day Edinburgh Old 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!
